Coining It In

Here is my effort for this weeks "In My Pocket" Challenge over on Hels blog
The theme is Coins
Just for a change (ha ha... get it... change...coins... sorry) there isn't one bit of stamping on this piece, I just covered the front with paper, typed the lettering out using my new font reel and my label maker, and then added some plastic coins.
Inside....

Because i knew that the space wouldn't of been big enough for what i wanted to do,
i made a pop out by using an extra piece of 6x6 paper, then decorated basically the same as the front.
I used some ribbon to cover the join of the 2 different papers and also to be able to close the pocket, and then just edged the whole thing using a green sharpie marker.
