GC108: Color Challenge The color of money

I can't believe it's my 4th week as a Visiting Artist over at Gingersnap Creations!! This week GC108: Color Challenge -The color of money is the theme.
I live in the USA and green is the color of money.
I painted a piece of cardboard with some Peeled Paint Distress Crackle Paint.

The pea pod vintage image I found on Graphics Fairy

I hand dyed the seam binding with a few green Tim Holtz's Distress Inks. The tag was made with the Tiny Tags and Tab Sizzix Die. I added a few gems and a butterfly I made with the SU! Beautiful Butterflies Sizzlet Die.
Can't wait to see what everyone makes!!!
Thanks for looking!

I like this creation for the GS "money" challenge! The painted cardboard and label are great! I'm so sad that I got rid of most all of my old Autie's vintage seam binding ... but hindsight is great, isn't it?!? May I have your source for the seed packet? I really like this one! :)
