Pocketful of Sunshine

When I first saw this bundle, the creative juices just started turning!  The set includes some little dollar bill like pieces too.  I'm thinking of graduation and birthday cards!

The card today can be for whatever you would like.  Maybe a friend helped you out - maybe a stranger helped you out!  Give that card away so the know they dazzle you.
