Pocket Love

I loved ALL of the sketches that Heidi Van Laar created for the Caardvarks challenge that I had to play along again! Here's the second sketch I decided to play with:

And here's the card I came up with:

I was going through some of my little guys clothes to either throw away or give away and found an old tattered pair of jeans that obviously had seen it's better days, probably with all three boys ;0) I decided to cut out and save the pockets so I could use them on a card - recycling at it's creative finest!!

The quirky flower and leaf is a die by Quick Kutz. The pp is from SU! and I used the notebook paper punch along the edge. The paper is matted onto kraft cardstock and the edges were distressed with Ranger distressing ink.

I think this would make a fun card for a teenager. And in case you were wondering. The jeans were a size 3T. Any larger size and the pocket might be too big for typical card fronts.

Well, off to enjoy my last few hours of the extended weekend. Hope yours was funtastic!

Stamps: NONE
Ink: Ranger distressing inks - vintage photo, sepia, SU! Marigold Morning
Paper: SU! Kraft, Office Ephemera
Accessories: CB, Quick Kutz die, bling, Jeans pocket, Family time sticker, Michaels ribbon
