"All tucked in" Card

Yep, two posts in one day , and yep another soft colored card; I told you, something weird is going on...

I am linking this up to the challenge over at City Crafter Challenge
All they ask is to make a pocket. Well, that's easy enough, so I made three. I wonder if that will triple my chances at winning...

So, we will see a lot of tags in this challenge !! I used this oh so pretty fabric for the backing. Isn't that so spring-y...I cut up some Prima tags to make my pockets...I inked up my lace...

 I cut out some tags, inked the edges, added some fibers, my all time favorite ribbon, a brad . I find those images really beautiful.

and I love the back of this paper; I added a strip of the same fabric on both tags...

and here is the third pocket, same fabric and ribbon as the front, with a tag I made with vintage (1949) sheet music, inked it up to age it even more, and those flowers are cut out from another fabric. I thought the colors and watercolor went well with the front. I am really happy with the inside of my card...

I love using fabric on my cards...tks for visiting, again...A bientôt ...Gigi
