Camouflaged Pocket Inserts

This week's Make It Monday challenge, hosted by Dawn McVey, over at the Papertrey Ink blog, is really kind of fun. Once I got started, I had a hard time stopping and I ended up making three cards.

Dawn made two gorgeous cards; here's just one of them ...

This is the last card card that I made, and my favourite. I did a little bit of rocking and rolling on the apples ...

Here's a pic of the tag out of its pocket ...

Paper: PTI Stamper's Select White, Summer Sunrise, Vintage Cream card; PTI Pure Poppy Polka Dot patterned paper; Stamps: PTI Apple Prints;  Inks: PTI Smokey Shadow, Pure Poppy, New Leaf, Harvest Gold, Berry Sorbet; Dies: PTI Apple Prints, Scripted, Library Pocket, Tag Sale #10
I made a second card using leftover bits and pieces from this year's Stamp-A-Faire ...

I dipped half of my heart into white glitter because Heather Nichols was talking about doing this on the PTI Forum this week and I'm a big copycat :) Here is the full tag ...

I also ended up making a Halloween card ...
