it was the half circle up at the top that grabbed me. i saw it and immediately thought, "POCKET CARD!" (which is odd in itself because i cannot remember the last time i made one of those!!!):
the last time i was at my lss, i picked up these new prima papers, and i've been dying to use 'em, so they were the obvious choice. i actually thought the frame would hold some butterflies cut from the prima "flights of fancy" paper...but that sweet little bird flitted in from a pack of my mind's eye rub-ons, instead.
the inside panel was already pretty fancy, so i didn't really need to do much there besides affix some felt ribbon as a pull. all the same, i couldn't resist a few more rub-ons at the bottom edge!
i am almost positive this will be my s-i-l's birthday card, but that's still a few weeks away, and one of the things i've learned is that it's wiser to leave a thematically neutral card greeting-less until i'm actually READY to send it. because i can always ADD the "happy birthday" at the last minute...but it's hard to remove if i suddenly need a "get well" or "thinking of you" card! one thing of which i'm certain: this is not the last pocket--or sketchy thursday!--card i will make!!! :)
