Pocket project

Over at Smudgy Antics we have a new challenge starting as well. The rules are changed here as we are now allowing two weeks for you to get those projects done. NO excuses now for you not to tout your wares and enter into the fun. We've set the challenge this time really easy asking for a
project with a pocket
You can make a decorative envelope, a pocket card, or you can add a pocket to a canvas or a journal page. If paper isn't your thing, feel free to go three dimensional and alter an object using a pocket or creating a pocket within the piece. The more unique you can get, the better. We love it when you guys and gals think outside the box!
My project is a kind of card though - a 3-D one.
A very simple outside using a paper from DCWV "the Immortal Love" matstack. Try as I might, it looks browner here than in real life. The image is from Smeared Ink, of course. Called Fallen Angel 2.

Coloured with promarkers before fussy cutting out and sticking to the mat. The sentiment is part of a rubber stamp in my stash, origin unknown.
The yellow decorative edge flows inside and matches my pocket.

The inside Angel is, again, a Smeared Ink image. This time it's from the collection "Symbology of Angels - Guide". Again coloured with promarkers and fussy cut out and more of that matstack.
The pocket as you can see here has a gusset to allow the insertion of a favourite hot drink or two as a little "pick-you-up" for a friend.
The pocket was sewn onto the card base using natural raffia.
The initial inspiration came from a youtube video here. I just adapted it to my needs and made it 3-D.

The rest of the DT have made some fabulous projects as well if you need any more inspiration.
Can't wait to see what you guys come up with. The possibilities are endless! Hope to see them entered into the challenge at Smudgy Antics.
