ABC Challenge "P" is for Pockets...

Welcome back everyone to another ABC Challenge. We have traveled through the alphabet and have arrived at the letter "P". Our challenge to you this fortnight is to create a card with a pocket.

I saw a pocket card on Danielle's blog and she did a beautiful job on her's. I was obviously impressed, because I CASEd her card. I wanted to use a pocket style which was a little different and this certainly fit the bill.

Here is my card:

Here is a closer look at Tilda:

Here is the salutation panel removed from the pocket:
