Weekly thingy and the Four of Pentacles/Diamonds and Toads

I’ve already done a couple of these reward and punishment stories so the basic outlines are pretty clear. Generous kind stepdaughter, mean jealous greedy stepmother, greedy lazy daughter. The good kid gets rewarded with diamond and roses (or pearls, or coins, there are variations) falling from her lips when she speaks, which seems profitable but somewhat inconvenient. The stepmother sees that, sends her daughter out to get the same reward, but because she’s a lazy lil jerk who won’t share her food or help a beggar she gets cursed with snakes and toads instead.

I’ve been waiting to work this one in and nearly did it earlier before I realized that OBVIOUSLY it’s a coins card.

Foreground: a girl in simple clothes smiles slightly as coins drop from her lips and roses surround her,  Background: a woman in fancy clothes glowers angrily while her daughter vomits up a snake behind her.
