A Paper Pumpkin Birthday Card

Today I am going to share with you a simple and quick card I made using the April 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit.  This kit has a leafy round spring frame to make.  I don't need a frame decoration for my home, so I thought I would look online for some cards to make using the images that came with the kit. This kit had a large amount of images.  I'm excited to play with them again.  But for today I found a card on Pinterest that is similar to the one I made.  You can see that card here.

This card was made by using Basic Black for the base.  I added a layer of Lost Lagoon.  I found a few pieces of that card stock left.  It retires at the end of the month. I'm trying to use up what I have before I start buying new items.  

I stamped the images on Whisper White card stock.  I used Old Olive for the stem and leaves.  For the flower, I used Lost Lagoon ink (stamped off once on the larger petals).  I used Daffodil Delight for the center of the flower. There is a little small three line kind of scribble image that I stamped once, inked it up again, turned it 1/4 turn and stamped again.  The words are from the kit and I stamped them using Lost Lagoon.  Now that I'm looking at it, I think I should have used black ink. But it's okay, I still like it.  

It was a quick and easy card to make.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
