Stampin for the Weekend Challenge4-pocket card and All Sorts Challenge #7-acetate

I made this card for 2 challenges. Stampin for the Weekend and All Sorts Challenge. For Stampin for the Weekend you were supposed to make a pocket card and for the All Sorts Challenge to make a card using acetate. I made a pocket card using acetate for the pocket! This is kind of a fall card in the summer! I wanted to use this pretty Basic Grey paper for the background. THe stamps are Gel-a-tins Sheltering Tree. I got this stamp set in a kit and I just love it! The tag is Chatter box. I attached the pocket with the saying and 2 buttons and added ribbon to the tag. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Beautiful card. I love those papers and the buttons are a cute little touch. What a briliant idea having an acetate pocket I will have to give that a go some time.
    Thank you for joining us at stampin' for the weekend and good luck.
