Mini Money Gift Card

I think I've just made the cutest thing to gift money with! Hehe...but I may be a little biased here.... :P

Anyway! I made this for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, Challenge #28!
The challenge was based on this sketch:
So I made a cute little money gift card.  Here's the inside:
I made a little pocket on the inside to hold the money.
On the back of the card (or rather, the front!) I added the happy b'day sentiment:
Sorry, it's a little over lit!
I stamped in gold on white card stock, inked the edges with the same gold ink pad, added some pearls and 3D mounted it.  I think I cut it out a little skew, so my remedy for that is to just lay it out at an angle so that you can't see it, hehe.
And this is what the gift card looks like from the outside when it's open:
And then I just used a patterned paper, and left over ordinary white paper which I spray painted gold for another project, to decorate the card with.  I cut a small line into the card for the tip of the gold piece to slip into to hold the card closed.
Ain't it cute?! :D  Tnx to Waltzingmouse for the inspiration!
