I just loved the colors over at the Play Date Cafe this week.  I had some great Distress Inks in those shades so I started by inking my cardstock with all three colors.  I then used a background stamp on top to give it some interest.  I wasn't sure what to do next when in my pile of scraps on my desk I spotted this great little pink pocket shaped polka dot paper.  It was the perfect size to fit a tag into and the perfect size for the card so I decided to make a pocket card with the sentiment in the pocket and the inside of the card blank for a personal note.

Here are the colors I had to work with:

And here is the outside of the card:

For the tag insert I used a manilla shipping tag which I inked with the Yellow Lemonade Distress Ink.  Then I took my favorite Crafters Workshop template and the Persimmon Distress ink and made a pattern.  Last I stamped my sentiment which was the quote 
Life is measured in moments
Live every moment
Laugh every day
Love without regrets

I followed that up with Happy Birthday! added some ribbon and the insert was complete.  Here it is:

I was also excited about the idea of a pocket because there is a fun challenge over at Colorful Creations for a pocket so I will be entering it there too!

Hope you have enjoyed viewing my latest card creation!
