Heart 2 Heart Challenges: Tuck It In

The final April challenge @ Heart 2 Heart is to "tuck it in."  With graduation quickly approaching (5/17!), I couldn't help but think of cards that can easily have a check or cash tucked into them.  Here's what I created:
 I used my Cricut Artiste cartridge to cut everything on the front, starting with this cool card base from Crystal Blue card stock (p. 57, cut @ 3-3/4").  The banner is from the Artiste collection stamp set, Birthday (p. 58, cut @ 1").  The adorable hot air balloon is part of the April stamp of the month, My Sunshine* (p. 70, cut @ 2-3/4").  The clouds can also be found on p. 70 (1" and 3/4" cuts).  I chose the Gypsy and Honey color scheme to match our school colors.  The "grass" is a strip of Chantilly B&T that I hand trimmed to mimic the banner.
 The two stamps on the inside are from the Artiste Kudos stamp set.  At graduation time, I always think about Dr. Suess's book, Oh, the Places You'll Go! and the hot air balloon reminded me of that too.
Now, can you tuck it in?  Since the end of the month is tomorrow, we've extend this week's deadline to Saturday, 5/4.  All the other April challenges will close tomorrow at midnight.  I hope you'll join us at H2H!  Be sure to check out our Design Team's inspiration for you this week.
