Double D Challenge - Pockets

These next two weeks at Double D Challenge, Diane is our hostess and she has picked POCKETS!
Just look at the mood board, will you? There is lots of inspiration here, but I was drawing a blank. 
Mostly because I have limited stamps and dies here and none of them seemed to fit. So, I went to Pinterest for an idea.  I often do that when I am stuck. I found this video on a Pocket card. There are several out there, just put Pocket card in the banner on YouTube. 

Here is the Pocket card that I made for this challenge. 

I wish that you could see the sparkle on the front. Here s what I used.
After making the card according to the instructions, I used The Greetery Hoop Wreath die and stamp to decorate the front. My inks are Distressed ink in Iced Spruce and Fired Brick. 
I cut the Hello from Honey Bee Buzz Words. 
I used WOS on the Hello and some of the flowers, and glossy accents on the buds. 
Lots of gold and red sequins from my stash. 
This was fun and I will be making more of these. 

Here is the prize for a random winner.

Please visit the blog to see the great jobs for more inspiration from the design team.
