Yet Another Money Holder for a Friend's Wedding and Two Challenges

Hello everyone! I've been at work the last couple of days making another money holder, this time for a wedding. This is the wedding of one of my husband's former students. A while back, we got a phone call from this former student, and she asked my husband to give her away at her wedding. Hans was so surprised and honored of course, but has asked her was she sure? Didn't she have another man in her life that is closer to her than he was? She said that he had been the man most like a father to her in her whole life. Wow, can you imagine having that kind of impact on college students? My husband is fully awesome, and he helps so many young men and women be all they want to be! This young woman is from Jamaica, and is a very bright student. She is now attending law school, partly because she was a member of Hans' Moot Court team.

A close-up of the inside, the part that fulfills the challenges, for the most part!

I made this card for the happy couple, and hope to slip a little $$ in the pocket for them. This is the same couple for whom Greta made her recipe book. She is to be in the wedding also. Here she is in her dress--so grown up! :-)

Greta and I have both owe our inspiration to the Whiff of Joy Tutorial Blog. There are some wonderful ideas to try on there, people! We got both the money holder and the recipe book ideas from the WOJ Tutorial blog. Yay!

Here's a photo of the card closed up.

I made a place for us to sign the card on the back.

So, without further ado, I would like to enter the money holder in the following challenges. This was kind of an organic project, that went where it wanted to, regardless of the restraints I put upon it. So I'll say that the money holder is loosely based on both of these challenges. I hope I did enough to qualify, but if not, I still think I came up with a really pretty project as a result of keeping the challenges in mind. Thanks for the inspiration, ladies!
