Christmas Card and Double Diagonal Pocket Card

I have never made a double diagonal pocket card before so here is my first one.    I made this for a tutorial challenge over at Marks Finest Papers blog .  I used a Marks' stamp set called "Tweet Blessings".  I loved the funny sayings that I used on the tags.   I suppose you would like to see them now that I have told you about them.
 The sentiments are from the "Tweet Blessings" set and the umbrella and birds were from an old Stampin' Up set.

Challenges:
stamped blessings - Tags
Robyn's Fetish Blog - Tags
No Matter Which Challenge - Anything


Here is another card I did for a Marks Finest Papers challenge.   This challenge is "Getting Back to Nature".    I used the  MFP set "Christmas in the Country".   If you are wondering what is next to the card, that is the matching envelope.

Thanks, for stopping in today and seeing my latest cards.  Have a great day.

Challenges:
