Stampin' for the Weekend - with a pocket

Apolgies for the background, the best shots were from the kitchen table complete with mess/windows and goodness only knows what else behind. The stamp on the front is one of those fab foam backed ones again stamped and embossed in white, the bigger flowers were cover 'gifts' and the centres are white puff paint. Inside no idea where the bg paper came from, the heat resistant acatate and the tag have been stamped with HOTP stamps again embossed using white ep.

The challenges are Stampin' for the Week-end who asked for either a wallet or pocket card. I love doing pocket cards using acatate. You might have noticed that an earlier attempt to meet the Stamp Something Challenge failed due to a lack of embellishments 2 ribbons 3 flowers 2 of which a doubles think this one is OK.
