365 Cards- Scor-It Day2

Today is Day #2 of Scor-It week on 365 cards. Today's challenge was to create a money holder. It happens I recieved an invitation today for my friends Graduation. She is graduating from college with her BA in Early Childhood Education. She happens to be last year's Teacher of the Year for our agency, the designer of last years winning t-shirt (I am the designer this year), my Sponsor at church (like a god-parent), and a cat lover! She's a great person and has worked REALLY hard for this degree. So, I created a kitty themed graduation card (I think shes a little too "adult" for the old caps and gowns- though I guess kitties aren't real adult! LOL) Anyway, here is my creation:



It was really wet out today (after almost a week of PERFECT weather!) so I photographed indoors and the colors are off but you get the idea. I used the tutorial I found on Design Team Member Vicky's Blog, Paper Girl I added a little insert in the top pocket that I can write a personal note on. I scalloped the edge with my corner rounder and added another piece of ribbon. I used my M's $1 clear stamps once again and some two-sided cardstock from my stash, and misc scraps, including the footprint ribbon. Hope you like it!

Oh, here's another picture of my boys. They had a blast after church yesterday with the Easter Bunny!

I like your card very much, I'm a cat person and I think she will love it. You pulled all of the elements together so beautifully.

I just participated today in this group and it is a really talented bunch. I'm so impressed by everything I'm seeing. Wow!
