Camouflaged Pocket Inserts

This week, Dawn shows us how to create camouflaged pocket inserts to tuck inside super easy pockets for our cards!  
Watch her video on this design technique HERE

I think I need to practice a little more to capture this design that Dawn has so beautifully captured.  I never tire of my Song Birds stamps /dies (can you tell ;-),  so maybe I will try this again using different colors and patterns.
Here is a picture of the panel pulled out of the "pocket" I made using some neglected Journaling Tags.  Can you see the gold thread nested under the bird?
