Pocket full of Roses

This week's challenge on Speedy Fox and Friend's challenge is to make a card that uses more than one border.  I have no idea why but I fixated on making a pocket card.  I got the scalloped border done and then my brain went dead.  I love the french scrolls but originally kept trying to find a way to put a sentiment on the bottom.  Sometimes, enough is enough.  This was a great use your stash challenge.  The green is the last of my Mellow Moss scraps, I miss that.  This also used up the last of my raffia ribbon.  The DP, which I thought I would never use is from My Mind's Eye and it actually became the piece that I used as my inspiration.  It works so well with the Great Flowers set from MFPs.  I used the flower from one image and the leaves from another on the same set.  This was fun and I enjoyed trying something different this week.  I may have to try another pocket card.
