Camouflaged Pocket Inserts

Here's my card for a couple challenges about to close--PTI MIM & SSS Monday.  It's also my second entry for Darnell's NBUS Challenge & you've still got time to enter for a chance at tons of prizes! My design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches
I stamped the image from PTI Ombre Builder (NBUS) in Autumn Rose on white cardstock & clear embossed an image from PTI Turning a New Leaf. Score tape was used to attach it to the dry embossed Autumn Rose panel.  The insert is made with PTI Mat Stack 3. Two images from Turning a New Leaf were die cut from Simply Chartreuse & stamped with the matching images in matching ink & they are attached only to the insert.  The sentiment is from Twig Wreath, also NBUS.  

I looked through my notebook of PTI color combos which is why I used Dew Drops close to the color of Hawaiian Shores.  
Hope you've enjoyed the weekend.  We've had fun getting back into football, even if our beloved Oregon Ducks & Seattle Seahawks did loose. At least we could cheer for last year's Duck QB who had a fabulous first NFL game.  Thanks for stopping by.

Excellent. VERY clever. It looks like a bird cage when the card and pocket are together. Love it.

Let's go football! The best husband baby-sitter ever! Woot! I really like this card even though my brain is too fried to make sense of your words (I've had sole switchboard duty all day). I love that pocket and how it hides the insert so well, plus the insert is so pretty!

Until I read and took a closer look did I realise that it was not a bird cage. Beautiful gift card and love how the squares come back on the background and foreground, Greta!
