.....but still get it SOOOO right!
When you enter into a friendship swap - be sure to read the small print!
I was incredibly pleased with this card as it's one of the best I've ever made (thanks to the very talented Rach and the fantastic way she decorates the insides of her cards - I hope I've not copied too closely as I was aiming to flatter rather than copy). Anyway, the card was made, duly dispatched by Royal Mail to my swap partner and delivered in good time and good order. A wonderful 'Thank You' e-mail then came back..... with a final question of "How does this fit in with the Halloween Challenge?" Oooooops! I didn't read that bit. Actually, the Halloween challenge was optional so I'm okay - but I have managed to fit it into the challenge anyway (see the end of this posting for my creative thinking on the subject).
Here is the card I made.

I put the close-up picture of the pocket, which is made of acetate and run through the Swiss Dots folder, on the site yesterday. I wanted to do a tag card that you could see the papers underneath when the tag was removed.
