Lady Anne's Challenge August

Morning All!
Today is the first Monday of the Month and so it means it's time for the new challenge at Lady Anne's Cards.  The theme this month is make a pocket card.  A pocket card is one where a tag or design is hidden in a pocket in the card.

This is my Design Team inspiration card for the challenge, hopefully it will inspire you to enter the challenge.  This months prize is donated by our sponsors Stitchy Bear Stamps

My Card has three pockets which I made from the largest insert die from Spellbinders Resplendent rectangles which I mounted onto the front of rthe card.  I decorated the front using a strip of die cut lace (Sue Wilson for Spellbinders I think) swirls from Gold elements one and a delicate Aster on the tag which I made using the smallest die in the rectangles set.

The tags in the pocket are made from the next size down from the pocket die and are decorated in simple ribbon with the wonderful digi stamp from our sponsors Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps
 I love the sentiment of these and thought this would make a great anniversary card, especially with the "Dance as if no-one is watching"

It would be great to see as many of you as possible to enter the challenge as I get to look at your entries!! lol

Enjoy ...
