A Card for Mo's Challenge - "Whats in your Pocket"

Good Morning Ladies, hasnt the weather been awful these last few days my poor hubby has been trying to get outside to finish of some woodwork, hes trying to make two little beds for his granddaughters for Christmas, if the weather keeps on as it is at the moment I think if will probably be next Easter before they get them. Ive already made the bedding for them.
Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks Mos Challenge "Whats in your Pocket Card" and Ive used this sweet image of Kai playing with the snowflakes, mind you he doesnt want to sit on that cold snow for long or he could be in trouble. Ive printed it onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens, then cut it out with my rotatrim, Ive mounted it onto a piece of blue card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card base with a shaped front for the opening to the pocket, Ive used two of the most beautiful papers from Donna's new Paper Digi set "Christmas Dreams" which is becoming available this coming Friday 12th, they really are beautiful, anyway Ive used a snowflake one for the inside which has also been mounted onto a piece of blue card, for the front Ive used a piece of white pearlescent card and the second patterned paper from this new set an all over sentiment paper, which means Ive not put an actual one of the card. I carnt say enough about these new papers they are so useful and so pretty, they have distressed framed edges and also some of them have the most beautiful designs in the background, in fact so beautiful you dont want to hide them.
I then ran some extra strong tape along the curve of the pocket and stuck some lace along it, then stuck the pocket down with some more of the same tape. On the front I have put my mounted image, and then created a tag for the inside this has also been made of blue card and the last of my papers a pretty star pattern, and at the end I have used one of the prima lace swirls to top it of.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Hi Shirley, I love this card, especially the curved corner. And of course the papers! I would have used Donna's papers for my ABC card, but it was done 2 weeks ago, before we made the team! I'm working on some now.
Hugs, Donna x
