Mother's Day Layout with a Sketch

So, here is the monthly sketch challenge from Paper Crafting Divas.  I initially found it on Pinterest and I loved the simplicity of it.  There were just so many things your would do with it.
I decided to use it for my Mothers' Day pictures.  I knew I wanted to use the background paper right off...I have been holding on to it for awhile, waiting for just the right layout...and this was it.  I then picked two solids and another smaller print to use.
I added some flowers, pearls, rhinestones and ribbon.
I did change it up a little with a journal box and there is a pocket...can you find it?  OK, I will tell you...the top half of the layout is the pocket.  I created it by simply stitching the printed paper to a piece of card stock.  Now, since I didn't want my pocket to be 12" deep I ran a row of stitching behind where the ribbon trim is.  Voila...a place for my cards!  I have to admit that this sketch challenged me a little, but I am very happy with the final product.
