Make It Monday..Camouflaged Pocket Inserts!

A great new MIM up HERE.  Dawn has a fabulous idea for a making a pocket card but camouflaging it with die cuts!  Love it!!
I do not own that bookmark die, but my BFF does and I made some when I was at her house!!  I chose Beautiful Brushstrokes for the flowers and leaves and the sentiment is from Twig Leaf.


I tried a different one first..using candles, good idea, but didn't really pan out...might give it another try and place the candles on top of a BIG die cut number, what do you think??
there is a sentiment inside...it just reads "happy birthday", but the candles got all wonky on me, so they kind of stick out instead of laying flat...this one has to be a redo!!

  5. I think your camouflaged pocket cards BOTH came out great Colleen! I always forget to use Beautiful Brushstrokes, but after seeing your card I've pulled it out and set it on my desk so I remember to give it some love! Love the soft and pretty Fall colors you used on those flowers!! And I think your candle card came out great too...love the bright and bold colors, and I think attaching to a number would be a great idea too! :0) Have a great weekend my friend!
