Welcome back to day number two of Monica's interactive card hop. I hope you saved some fun from yesterday so you can enjoy the cards we made for you today.
Today I had the "hidden pocket" card, and let me tell you the who finding a tutorial or even a picture was hidden. I spent the past 3 days searching for a tutorial for this card and let's just say there hidden because I couldn't find none. I ended up just playing with some paper and made my own version of what I think a hidden pocket is.  
Let's get onto my card.  Starting with the supplies. 
cricut cutter * hand made flower i received in a swap * 3-d sticker frames - say cheese * Irock gems * dimensional flower stickers * scrapbook sticker quips * light pink book mark * dark pink 12x12 textured cardstock * pink ribbon * pink chalk pad.
I cut my cardstock to 6 in x 12 in. I then scored my piece at 6 in so it can be folded in half. Taking my book mark I measure another piece 3/4 in bigger on both sides of the book mark. This way the extra 3/4 can be folded under and glued into the card to make the "hidden pocket". After playing around with it for a minute I glued the two sides of the bookmark cover down to the inside of my card. I then stapled a small piece of pink ribbon to the end of the bookmark so it can be pulled out. Taking the pink chalk pad I stamped all over the top of the bookmark. Then added 3 irock gems in each of the four corners and in the middle I put a sticker that says Scrap-A-Holic. I then lay this aside and continue on to the front of the card.

In the top left corner I place a silk ribbon flower which I received in a swap. I can't remeber who made it but if it was you please let me know. In the top right I placed a 3-d old time camera .  Along the left side I placed a 2 piece film strip and placed two dimensional flowers inside as if the person took pictures of the flowers.  Bottom right I placed 3 Irock gems . In the middle I placed a sticker from the book of scrapbook quips. It says, so many photos, so little time. 
Well that's my version of a "hidden pocket" card. If you know of  another way please let me know as I really would like to know now.
Here it is again...
I will be giving away a small kit to make one of these cards (from yesterday) as my blog candy. So please become a follower and leave me a comment as to what theme you would want your kit to be. Also please leave me a way to contact you. Mr. Random will draw a winner on the 22nd.
