make it monday

went with a super girly card today, kind of shabby-chic-ish too :)

this is for this week's make it monday, the challenge was to create a pocket with papertrey ink's edger dies, i only have the doily edger dies, i haven't picked up the other ones yet.

i actually made my pocket first, i knew exactly how i wanted it and it went pretty fast, but then it took me another two hours or so to make a card base i liked for it :)

here's the card:

and here it is without the insert in the pocket, i stamped the inside of the pocket so there would be a pretty pattern showing through when you take the insert out :)

i played with another of my new fresh ink pads for this, the gingham and sentiment are stamped in fresh ink melon pigment ink and i'm still pretty pleased about it :) i mentioned how super awesome their white ink is in my last post, if you're interested, i bought my ink online here.

thanks for stopping by, lemme know what you think!
