Dream and it shall be

Made this inspirational card for our daughter in college.
I bought the Ancient Chinese Coin stamp at Michael's and cut the font from Blackletter Cricut cartridge at 1".
The odd swirls also cut at 1" from Blackletter.

I cut the aperture with my Coluzzle through three layers of card stock.
The coins took me awhile to figure out what I really wanted to do and how to hang them.
Lots of inking and they are back to back so when you turn the card to read the inside - the coin is a complete double sided coin.

Inside I hand wrote a sentiment to make it more personal.
Followed the color scheme mint, chocolate and cream at
Colour Create Challenge
and the activity of stamps and Cricut at
Bitten by the Bug 2
