Pocket thanks and get well card






Happy Saturday blog friends...We found the floor, but it took the whole family.  Taking a breath before we dive into part two of our holiday agenda (which for me includes lots of work).  I had part of this card set that I screwed up, so I chopped it and turned it into a pocket card.  I just got this May Arts crochet velvet ribbon and it needed a project (even if the card itself doesn't have a purpose, yet).  I'm playing along with the Make It Monday A La Carte challenge, click here for the original MIM pocket card challenge.



And it's so hard to tell, but I added some glitter accents (Make it Monday #94) to the purple flower, it sparkles in just the right light.



And one more project, I'm playing along with the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge, use the above photo for a card.  I tried the white on white for the sentiment, but it didn't work so I used two Lil Inker mats (texture frame and stitched mats), which is hard to tell in this photo, but gives the white on white a bit texture.
