Buttons - In My Pocket

My crafting friend Hels has come up with another great challenge which is to make a pocket card with a hidden item. This weeks hidden item is buttons.

I used the template which is on Hels blog and cut out my pocket shape from card. I covered it with various papers. On the top flap of the pocket I stamped one of Tim Holtz stamps (Listen to your heart). I then added a glittered butterfly (papermania).





For the inside of the pocket I stamped a small bird in black ink. I then masked this off and stamped the dried flowers stamp randomly over the bottom half of the pocket using a green ink pad. On the top half of the pocket/ the inside of the flap I stamped three little flower stems and then added a little button to each as the flower head.



To keep the pocket closed, I used a silver heart shaped clip and I thought this would go nicely with the front sentiment.

I love this pocket! So fresh and vibrant with the greens and yellows plus I love the contrasting cream of the top flap. The orange flower really stands out, is that on purpose or a happy accident?
