True Blue Sweetheart Swap

I joined ArtJoyStuff's True Blue Sweetheart swap and finally put something together and sent it off last week.
 It took me forever to figure out what to make, everytime I put something together it didn't look right. I started out with a blue background and added some vintage pictures. I thought they all kinda looked like they were in love. I had everything laid out on the background, and it just didn't look blue enough, so I pulled out some blue vellum and adjusted my layering. The trim at the bottom is vintage.
And, since I've noticed some people package their cards so beautifully, I thought I'd try out some packaging.
I took some blue sparkly mesh and sewed it into a pocket. I learned mesh is not the easiest to sew. I don't usually use a sewing machine, but I figured it'd be a better pocket if I did, and I had a hard time sewing a straight line.
I can't wait to see what I get in return.
