TLC164 - Accomplished!

Don't you love when you can complete an SCS challenge on the day it is posted? Well, here's TLC164, 2 hours before the day is over. A quick post here and I'm heading to bed. Yes, I turn into a pumpkin very early (but I do read in bed for about an hour first)...

The technique challenge was to create a double pocket card. I have seen these, and they are always so beautiful, but remained a mystery to me. However, with the tutorial posted on the SCS forum, it was VERY easy to do! The longest part of the process was deciding how to decorate the tags.

I used Heidi Grace Designs double sided cardstock. The pattern is Wild Daisy Rd/Mix Floral and has wonderful colors in it. I like that they are subdued greens and yellows. On the front, I added some Dew Drops to the flowers to make them pop out a bit. The ribbon is from Target, layered on brown grosgrain from my stash. The tags are made from yellow cs, layered with green and again with a piece of vanilla. The top vanilla layer is stamped with a flourish from Rhonna Farrer and a sentiment from the Michael's dollar bin. Ink is So Saffron and Old Olive. I added the Primas with pewter brads and gave the tags an eyelet to hold the raffia ribbon.

I hope you all got to complete a project today! Thanks for looking!
