Gift card and then some

I designed this gift card/card. I thought wouldn't it be nice to give a gift card, but yet add some pictures and truly and make it a great present!! I came up with this and I think with a few pictures added, this truly is a great gift!

I started out with using this Bo Bunny paper. I inked all the edges with vintage photo. I printed off this digi and then use some spellbinders to mat it up. I placed this green ribbon to add some more green to the card. I embossed the sentiment and added a flower from the recollections.
The next page I sewed this green strip and sewed it to the main mat using gold thread. I inked the edges and embossed the sentiment using gold embossing powder. For the following page, I left it pretty plain other than a cute stocking sticker. I want to make sure there are places for a good size photo.
The next page is similar to the one before with the strip, stitching, and sentiment. However, the page after has a pocket for the gift card and some bling. I used a Martha Stewart punch to decorate the pocket and matted up the bottom to keep the flow of the colour. If you notice the tab on the side, that is a double pull out mat for more pictures.
Here is the pull out tag, with mats on each side:
