...Technique Lovers Challenge #164

This is my submission for today's Technique Lovers Challenge at SCS...Double Pocket Cards. Beth found a wonderful tutorial at Judy's blog seen HERE. This card looked so hard to make at first glance, but it turned out to be so simple and fun! I used Old Olive, Kraft, Soft Sky, and Whisper White for my color scheme today thanks to the Fall Flowers Designer Series Paper pack. I used a multitude of punches and Antique Brass Build-a-Brads, but I achieved the look that I wanted. I also faux stitched around the outside of the pocket and around the tags that fit inside the pockets.

Thanks for coming by today! I will have another sketch challenge to share with you tomorrow that incorporates the Color Challenge from SCS, so check back later! Until then...Hugs ~ Mercy
