Big Shoes - A Card With A Page Insert

Hello everybody!

Welcome my first post for the Mo's Dream Team. The card I'm showing you today is made in the style of this mini-album, more accurately speaking - the card has an insert, which is made exactly like a page in the album.
As some of you already know, I like cards with secret slots for the tags and with lots of space for writing personal messages.

For the current card I used a Mo Manning digital stamp, which is called "Big Shoes". I've planned to color this cute girl for a long time :)

The main Copic colors I've used are as follows:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E13
Shirt + Shoes: E38, E17, E13, E11
Hair: E11, E13, E15, E39, E79
Hat + Shorts: W7, W5, W3, W1
Ribbon + Bag: G03, G24, G02

The first page of the card:

In the side fold there's a pocket for a tag:

The second page:

On the back page there's a slot with two tags:

The filigree tab on the front of the card may be pulled out as well:

Several detail shots:

The papers used in this card are from two paper sets  - First Edition Paper Boho Chic & First Edition Paper Up Up & Away.
The dies used f the card: Marianne Design Creatables LR0269, Marianne Design Creatables LR0192, La La Land Crafts "Filigree Corner", Magnolia "Tilda Lace", Magnolia "Envelope Edge", Spellbinders "Opulent Ovals", Sizzix "Envelope Scallop Lace". Punch - Martha Stewart "Cherry Blossom".
