Crafty Secrets New Typography CD

 I've always wanted to make a pocket card like this and now  I am wondering why it took me so long???  Anyone else out there like me? Plenty of ideas and not enough hours in the day to execute them all.

This is the tag that is inside the glassine bag. I love what the glassine brings to the card. It provides a softness while  allowing the rich colors of the tag's design to be seen. I'm not sure if these photos or should I say this photographer does it justice!   I thought it would make a great bookmark. Now all I have to do is find a good book to go with it and it will be ready to give to someone special. Between birthdays and Mother's Day coming up I'm sure finding a home
for it will not be a  problem!

The source of inspiration for this card was The Shabby Tea Room April Showers  photo. It is filled with so many beautiful colors!  My image is from Crafty Secrets upcoming Typography CD.  I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product - previews look great!  The CD will be available within the next month. They also have a free printable for Mother's Day and tutorial that should be available tomorrow. I appreciate you taking the time to stop by and I hope you have an enjoyable day!
