A Pocket Card with a Digital Image

A quick post about a pocket card that I made with Poetic Flower Printable recently. The idea and theme came from the current Hero Arts Challenge (details here ).
I printed out the large poetic flower and just went from there...
027
I basically I worked around the large flower image and designed a pocket to wrap around the card stock. It's super easy to do.
 All I did was to make two score lines and glue the sides to the card stock and voila! The coloring was the same as I did with these cards .

 The lacy accent is from SRM Sticker! The sentiment was embossed. I really like how it turned out. The cards do bring on the happy! Hope you are having fun, too!
