A Tiddly Inks Graduation Money Holder

It's graduation time and I'm trying to knock out the ones I need for some young ladies in our church. I made this money holder for one of the girls who is graduating with a HS diploma AND her AA from college.

It's a money holder using this tutorial for the measurements. You can't see the belly band because it's UNDER the Tiddly Inks image. And isn't she cute?
That's Annie's Diploma. Her shoes were my main reason for snagging the digi! And as you can see, I blinged them up so she can graduate in style! LOL! I wish I could get the hang of coloring a Black image using Copics down...I hate that they look so grey...I'll just keep working on it...

I used three different stamp sets to do the sentiment. The hat is popped up and blinged to make it more interesting. I think that with the sentiment added in layers, that the money holder still looks nice even with the belly band (with the image) removed.

I did minimal decorating on the inside, with just a bunch of white doodledots and then added a white layer to write our message.
