TIO - Something with a Pocket

Thank you all for your visits and comments last week.  Hope you come back and join us again at Dragonsdream TIO this week, where Elizabeth has chosen the theme, "something with a pocket" so I had a go at something I've not done before, though not with as much success as I hoped. Still, I am quite pleased with the way it's turned out.

 I used bundled sage distress ink to colour both tags, and Wendy Vecchi backgrounds. Made the pocket with the second tag and then had to find a way to create my pop up.  I scoured blogs and websites and my crafting books but couldn't find the instructions I know I have seen!  So I cut a slit in the base tag instead.

The oak leaves are by paperartsy. This wasn't what I was originally going to have as my pull up!
Finished the tag pocket with a couple of craftynotions drops and some of the fab butterfly tissue tape round the bottom.

Hope you will dream big this week, too!

I love all the texture and the gorgeous colours. Lots going on and plenty of interest. Isn't tissue tape a wonderful invention?
