Pearls and Lace - FFFC #112

Good morning everyone! It is time for a new challenge at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenges and it is hosted by me!! The theme for this fortnight is Pearls and Lace and the sponsor for this challenge is no other than Marianne Designs. Don't you love all their products?
My card is for one of my best friends, her birthday is in two weeks and I wanted to make something very special for her. I wanted the card to have lot of pockets, tags and space for personal messages, I got inspired by this gorgeous card and I know she will love it. Lets take a look at my card, I tried my best to show you all the card's details, hope you enjoy it.
