Birthday Card Challenge!!

This card presented a challenge for me! I had to make a birthday card for a teenager (always challenging in itself!), but this one had to hold money in an unusual way. The recipient was getting cash for her "car fund", so each candle had to fit American paper currency. (Had to Google that part because the only cash I ever have on hand is Euro, and every denomination is a different size!) AND the card couldn't be larger than a 6"x6" size! Hmmmm....had to put my thinking cap on for this one!

This is ultimately what I came up with:

View at an angle

Inside view

Stamps: Pretty Petites, Word Play, Perfectly Penned
Paper: Pool Party, Island Indigo, So Saffron, Sycamore Street DSP, Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP
Ink: Island Indigo, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: sticky strip, mini glue dots, petite curly label punch, build-a-blossom punch, pennant punch, lacy circle nestie, circle coluzzle, party banner die-namic (MFT), lacy details tape
