Country Floral Lane Money Holder for #tgifc403

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card was inspired by the sketch challenge over @ TGIFChallenges this week.  Please click the hyperlink to visit the challenge.   These sweet bicycles from the Country Floral Lane DSP from the January - April 2023 Mini Catalogue, caught my eye for the long rectangular strip on the card.  I created a Belly Band with the greeting that for the vertical rectangle of the sketch.

***  The Trix ***

* Create a money holder with a 7 x 10 piece of Sweet Sorbet cardstock scored at 3 and 6 1/2.   Fold in the 3" section to create a pocket for the money, adhere with glue on the sides only.  *Trix* use a punch to cut a space to pull our the cash :)  

*  Let the pattern on the dsp dictate the size.  I had a 6 x 6 piece of dsp from our Paper Share, I loved the floral heart border above and bellow the line of bicylces, so the dsp became a 3 1/8 x 6" band.  

*  Use up the cardstock scraps - the belly band is a 1 1/4" x 10 piece of Sweet Sorbet, (cut when I created the 7 x 10 card base)  The scrap Petal Pink dsp is an 1/8 of an inch smaller than the Sweet Sorbet belly band.  The hearts are from scraps of complimentary dsp and cut out with the County Bouquet Punch, #160382

*  Stamp the sentiment from the Sending Smiles stamp set, #158701 with Sweet Sorbet ink.  Embellish with 2022 -2024 In Color™ Matte Decorative Dots
