MIM #223: Camouflaged Pocket Inserts & NBUS Challenge #5

We were treated to a lesson from Dawn this week at MIM,
and she shows us how to create Camouflaged Pocket Inserts with
PTI dies.
My card uses the Boutique Accesssory Card die set,
for 2 reasons.
I wanted a larger pocket for Enclosed Leaf dies, (never been used)
and because I wanted to play along with Darnell's NBUS challenge

You don't want to miss this one, fabulous prizes are at stake,
not to mention Darnell's posts are a hoot!

So here's my card

Pocket created with Text Style Autumn Abundance
and Boutique Accessory Card die
Leaves are smooshed and inked.

When you remove the card, the 2 top leaves go with it,
 and the sentiment from Flower Favorites is revealed.
Smaller leaves from Leaf Prints.
(Love that set, wait all year to use it!)
The card is going to one of our youth leaders at church.
She is an awesome teacher, and my
grandchildren learn so much from her!

Dawn's video is here on Nichole's blog:
