Garden Card Swap

I joined this wonderful group NeedlesnCrafts last year. The members there mostly are using needles to create their works. I am sooooooo afraid of needles and sure can't using it to create anything beautiful as they do. Fortunately there are still some members who are interested to make cards. Recently we are having our very first card swap, that's Garden Card Swap. I am very excited for this swap and really hope that more people will be interested in cardmaking.So, here is my creation for my partner, Barbara Jack.

I spent about half and one hour to make this pocket card,and mind you, I really had FUN !!!!! There is a bookmark inside the pocket and the frog-and-flowers image can be downloaded from Paper Inspirations Magazine :

Some of the flowers are stamped flowers, some are images downloaded from Paper Inspirations Magazine and the purple one is from Prima Flowers.

Well, now the supplies needed:

Yellow cardstock
Blue Cardstock
Blue ribbons
3DDragonfly embelishment
Flowers stamps
Copper brads
Wordings woven ribbon
Rubberstamp-Best Wishes(StampingUp)

Method?? You can email me privately, if you wish:-))
