Charming Inspiration

I was inspired to create this card for my youngest son's preschool teacher for her birthday. Her favorite colors are green and blue green. I received a card similar to this from a recent swap (posting of swap cards coming soon), but changed a little here and a little there. Seems I just cannot get enough of this Victoria Crocheted Trim, I love it! The stamp set is Charming and the sentiment is from the Occasions Mini set Create A Cupcake. I have also developed a very strong liking for the Naturals cardstock and used the Naturals White with Garden Green, Not Quite Navy, and Peach Parfait card stock and inks.

Our class sent both the teachers out to lunch together-something they rarely get a chance to do so I creatively folded their lunch money into hearts. These were $10 bills and I love how the image came out after all the folding. Believe me, if I had tried to make it happen it would not, so this was just a stroke of luck and the the design of the money. I made a "pocket" with punched hearts to hold the money hearts and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.

And here we are! Money hearts tucked neatly into a color coordinated heart pocket. I really had fun creating this card and I thank Melissa Bunn for sharing her talents to inspire me to create Mrs. B's birthday card!
