May 2017 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card

I went surfing for some other ideas to use on the May 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit.  I'm not a big donut card fan so I wanted to find something else to do with the kit.  I found this card on Pinterest, you can see the original card here.  I didn't change anything.  Though I think the flower center was suppose to be a lighter color.  But this is what I ended up with and I like it.

The kit comes with these striped bags.  I used the largest Stitched Circle die and was able to get 2 circles out of one bag.  Oh boy, even more pieces now!!! LOL

I taped the circle on a piece of Whisper White that was cut 3-7/8" x 5-1/8".  Next I stamped the words from the kit.

I tied the gold and white thread around the Whisper White cardstock.  The original card shows the thread tied around both the white and Soft Suede cardstock.  I am guessing that the original card opened at the bottom.  This card opens at the right.

The flowers were already die cut in the kit.  I stamped the centers with a found flowery circle from the kit.  I added a pearl to each one after I set them in place with Dimensionals.  Then I taped the piece to the Soft Suede cardstock.  Now the smart thing would have been to tape the Whisper White piece to the Soft Suede card base after adding the thread.  I had to deal with the bumpy flowers while adding tape to the back. I seem to manage to do that kind of dumb thing now and then!!!  Okay, more often than I care to tell you!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
