Basic Grey Challenge - Pockets

Well, I'm not too sure about this card at all, but it's my take on the Basic Grey challenge today which is to make pockets on your project. Papers are Basic Grey Eva and Porcelain, I stamped the bird and embossed with holographic powder and added the scalloped border with Sakura Gelly Roll pen. The American Crafts ribbon is pleated with Papermania pearl gems added, the flowers are a mix of Prima and Kaiser and the broad ribbon is from Hobbycraft. There is a gorgeous Prima heart nestled among the flowers and the sentiment on the tag is 'Laughter is the shortest distance between two people'.


A vast departure from my usual .....honest opinions please!

WOWOO Juliet - how quick of the mark are you? I've just got home from work - haven't even posted my DT card yet and there you are - in before me (Lol).
Gorgeous Juliet. Great colour combo. Love the way you've accented the scallop on the Porcelain with your Sakura scallop. A truly stunning card.
