Lovebirds - CR84FN46

Hey, hey!  This is my second post today.  I'm trying to make up for lost time :)
This card is going into the following challenges ~
Unscripted Sketches #142 - this time it's a "piggy-back" challenge.  The additional piece of the challenge is to create a pocket.  Which I did!

CR84FN46 - the challenge colors are pink, yellow and a neutral (I chose ivory)
The photos in the challenge graphic are so pretty, aren't they?  I thought of a pretty, girly, lacy card.  So, that's what I created.

Yeah, this is one of those cards that took a very long time to create.  But, I think it was worth it.  I did some stitching on a couple of the pieces of patterned paper, including the tag.  I sponged most of the edges with a bit of barely banana ink.  The crocheted "pocket" is a piece of vintage doily that I bought at an estate auction.  A few heart die cuts.  A die cut tag to tuck inside the pocket. A bit of pink ribbon leftover from a previous project.  A tiny key, a couple of gems.  Then the two Crafty Secrets stickers - Love and Lovebirds.  And, finally my card was finished!  I'm planning to put this in my Etsy shop...but, it might be difficult to let go of it. lol !
