Graduation Card and Mini Suitcase

                                                                    Happy Tuesday!!  This is a card I made for my friend's daughter that just graduated High School in Arizona.  I borrowed the template for the mini suitcase from Suzanne Dean (Thanks Suzanne your creations are amazing!! I am also taking her beginners copic class...I still need lots of  practice, but love these colors!) 

Inside the mini suitcase is a Target gift card. It fits just perfectly. 
Here is a close-up of the mini suitcase.  I used scor-tape to put the suitcase together so I know it will stay together!!  (Thanks Diane)
The outside of the card is embellished with flowers and butterflies from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The paper is stuff I have in my stash.  Most likely K & Company paper, but I don't know for sure.
Here is the inside.  Hope you enjoy.  I loved making this gift.  I will be making more of these mini suitcases....I just love them.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hugs, Teresa
