Custom Card Monday - A 21st Birthday at the Casino!

I had someone contact me on Etsy asking for a custom card for their nephew who was turning 21.  They were going to give him a gift card that he could use at a casino.  Here's what I came up with:

The digi is by Kenny K and I colored her with Copics.  I added some paper from DCWV Guy Stack.  The cards are an embossing folder from Tim Holtz.  I added some green distressing.  The poker chips are from some retired Stampin Up paper and I just punched them out and popped them up.  Added some linen thread and a distressed birthday banner.

Inside was simple space for the gift card.  Just added more of that retired SU paper and created a little pocket.  Also has a little room for writing!

Entering this in the following challenges:
