A Pocketful of Thanks

My best friend made and sewed some pockets for my 90 year old mother-in-law's day dresses.  And I wanted to make a thank you card for her.  Thanks, Virginia!!

Thanks to the challenge at Double Trouble I found a recipe for today's card:
From Thing 1 - Trouble Maker

Ingredients:  3 - Colors 
                       2 - Embellishments   
                       1 - Seasoned Stamped Sentiment  (clear or rubber stamp more than one year old)

and from Thing 3 - Twisted Sister  use the Sketch from  Retro Rubber 
"Let's get straight to the point. From my point of view, I see a sketch with sharp angles so here's MY angle: Using the sketch, create a project using at least one angular shape without round corners, i.e., triangles, quadrilaterals such as square, rectangle, parallelogram, rhombus, etc.  That's my angle and I'm sticking to it!"  
The pocket is a pentagon -- no rounded corners. 

and from THING 2:  Double Dare  - The stamp set from W+ 9 (pocket and sentiment) is very old -- I think it dates back to 2012.

So I'm also putting this into Retro Rubber

And also into 
  • patterned paper: Scenic Route
  • pocket stamps & die: W Plus 9 - A Pocketful (2012) 
  • sun die: Lawn Fawn
  • embellishments: 2 brads on the pocket corners
As always, thanks for taking a look.  Stay safe and stay well.
