A Pocket of flowers, a little shabby.

Hi, thought this week i would make a pocket from a piece of cardboard, distress it, paint it and add faux stitching. Really like the idea of using rubbish to make something lovely.

ingredients are;
The flowers are from an indigoblu stamp, summer lovin, stamped twice, once in black then the other with gold embossing powder. Fussy cut all of them out and the bee,paint with Maya Gold light gold and gold, shape with a ball tool. Liquid pearl in the centre then a gem.
Canvas card for the background with treasured gold around the edges.
Pocket has been cut from cardboard, torn, painted with chalk paint, distress vintage photo on the edges and faux stitching 
Florists natural fibres coming from the pocket.
Flowers 3d onto pocket and card.
5x7 card.
