Faux Paper Pumpkin Gorgeous Grunge

While surfing the net and ending up at Pinterest, I found this fun card.  Upon reading about how it was made I discovered it was a "Paper Pumpkin" kit card.  UGH!  I did not join the monthly Paper Pumpkin "club".  I have liked  a lot of the kits but have never purchased any.  But this one card in particular I just loved and wanted to make in the worst way.  After finding out it was a Paper Pumpkin card I almost gave up on it.  But there was something about this card that had me obsessed!!! LOL  I just HAD to make it.  You can see the original card here at Heather's blog.  

I proceeded to get out the supplies I thought I needed to make this card.  

The first thing I did was stamp the background using "Gorgeous Grunge" and the Bermuda Bay ink pad.  I always love it when I can use the "Gorgeous Grunge" set!!!

Since the circle was a dotted stamped one I knew I would have to improvise something there.  I used dotted decorative paper instead.  I punched it out and a piece of white for a layer behind it.  

I used the Washi tape from Christmas and taped it across a piece of white card stock and trimmed it up. I tore one end and left the other straight.  The words are from the "Simply Sketched" set and were trimmed up after stamping.  I cut the sides using a scissors.  I taped a piece of the elastic ribbon to the back and before setting it in place I tied a double bow using linen thread.  

This was a fun card to make.  It's not exactly like the Paper Pumpkin one but I like it anyway!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
