A pocketful of petals.

well over at Sunday stampers Hels really set us a challenge this week, being pockets!!yikes it I thought..so here is my pocket..full of petals...
I made my pocket using a small envelope covered in manilla card , so I could ink it and filling it full of flowers!

I distressed a frame..not sure where from sorry! The inside is kraft paper , coloured with picket fence and then DI.I wanted to keep to a vintage, neutral palette. I added flowers cut from sticky back canvas and clearly for art.. Using ....Wendy vecchi set.The spots are made using mini dot background from the artistic stamper. I added idea-ology cogs for centres...cannot help myself..think I am developing a cog obsession!!!!!

The stems are arts parts, as is the scalloped shelf, the roses a made from Tim papers using tattered floral overs and shapers die and a word band..(.love these) for good measure.
This was a challenge , I have to say and yet I Like my pocket full of petals!!!!and would never have made this if it had not have been for Hels!!!thanks.

I am entering this for the following challenges:
