Cameos and Pockets

Happy Monday everyone!!! It's hard to believe that today is the last day of February, but hopefully March will arrive like a lamb and we will see some signs of spring!!! The weather has been so cold lately, I have been dreaming of tropical breezes and I find myself scrapping with soft pretty colors that remind me of spring! Glitz Designs papers are perfect for those of you who are like me and want to make some soft pretty cards that remind you of spring!

In my first card I used some Love Nest papers along with the cameo image from the Scarlett Collection. I trimmed the edges of the cameo and glued some Tim Holtz Lavish Trimmings to the backside, making a sweet little focal point.
Supplies Used:
Glitz Designs "Love Nest Collection" papers: Stripe and Floral
Glitz Designs "Scarlet Collection" Cardstock Stickers

other supplies: Cardstock: PTI Rustic White and Bazzill yellow; Tim Holtz Lavish Trimmings; Papertrey Ink buttons; lace, stick pins and ribbon from my stash.

For my second card I decided to make a fun little birthday pocket. The Hoopla Collection is perfect for everything birthday!!!
Here's a peek at the tags that are inside:

Lovely card Kristii! The colors and embellishments do say Spring! I especially liked your pocket! Is this something you would give someone as a gift or is the recipient suppose to use the items in the pocket for their own crafting? Seen these pockets elsewhere and have been wondering!
