Pixie Cottage #30....DT Sketch or Fancy Folds!

This is my second post for today,click here for my ATS Die Cut post.

Hello Again!

Over at The Pixie Cottage, it is challenge time again and as with all of our challenges, you can either make a card based on our sketch or the theme. This weeks sketch was designed by our talented designer Pam and this week theme is fancy folds.

I made a pocket card and I'm hoping that it counts as a fancy fold. My mind sort of went blank for a minute and instead of wasting more time and paper, I made up my mind and settled on the pocket card for my project.
My pocket card features one of the newer Sandra Hammer images, Hannah With Apples. I brought this lovely apple design paper last year and I think it is perfect for Hannah With Apples! To give a little contrast, I added a few left over scraps from my October Afternoon paper pad.
Here is what the pocket looks like on the inside of my card and I kept it rather simple and used a small magnet to keep it closed instead of ribbon. The other magnet is tucked away in the corner of the pocket and I used glue dots to keep the magnets secure.
