A pocket of Flowers to you

I am sure you have all been seeing the flower pot pocket cards and I figured I would give them a try. I tell you they are so easy and what a perfect project for spring! So this card is based in SU cocoa and the flowers are cut with my CB mixed flower die using a variety of designer and solid papers. I added a few dew drops to the centers and a couple sprigs of green, punched with my MS branch punch.

I am going to post this card for the Cute Card Thursday as they wanted you to use pink and brown and then the Stamp something Challenge where they wanted you to use different shapes. I figured when I completed the project and then went through my challenge list it fit for both. I hope that is alright!

The inside of the card or shall I say the pocket is very simple. I actually only attached 3 of the flowers to the tag that is pulled out and left the other 3 on the pot- I just liked the way it looked when I was finished with it. The message is short, sweet and to the point- it is a God's Blessings from SU.
I hope you enjoy it and give em a try! I got my directions from Stephanie

WOW Heidi--that is FABULOUS!! I give you tons of kudos for all those awesome flowers and leaves. I don't have any flower die cuts...I had to use preassembled flowers with brads that I had purchased. Yours is definately better!! LOVE that you used the chocolate heart paper on the bottom of pot too! :)
