A Scholar - The Perfect Sentiment

 
Today's card is my second week as one of the guest designers for the month of June at The Perfect Sentiment and is sponsored by Fred She Said.  The theme is For the Graduate with the added twist of creating a gift card or money holder. 
The image and sentiment are a set from one of Penny Black's Slapstick stamps called A Scholar and it's so perfect for this challenge.  The papers are Best Creations Mr. and Mrs. collection, which I've had for ages.  Copics were used to colour the image and a few stickles and sparkly paper added.  Here's a couple pics of the inside of the card and the slot could hold either money or a card (personally, I like the one with the $100 bill!).


Be sure to head on over to the The Perfect Sentiment to see what the the talented design team has created, then get busy and create your card and enter it into the challenge but most of all, have some fun with it!
Challenges:
Divas by Design - to 'die'' for
Papertake Weekly - Bingo (mine is the middle line:  die cut, free and glitter)
Hooked on Crafts - All That Glitters
Great Impressions - die cuts or punches
Stamptacular Sunday - More than one fold

kulutusluotto Direction But if your credit debt is providing you worry throughout the day, a CCC program just might help you get started. They will allow you to lessen your mortgage rates and waive late prices. CCC may consolidate your financial situation and you just need to generate a person payment amount. You have a lesser repayment each and every month but it surely may not be actually lessened around your personal minimum amount debit card fee.
