Hooray for Paper Pumpkin — FMS#342

It’s time for a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week I have the honor of hosting our challenge.  I have a simple sketch, but it is one with multiple layers.  I think it will be fun to see how everyone uses them.  Here’s a look at the sketch:

As soon as I got my newest Paper Pumpkin kit in the mail this week, I knew I wanted to use it for the sketch.  It seems like I rarely use these kits as designed, though I usually love the sample cards.  It is so fun to get this cute box of happy mail each month.  The kit this month coordinates with the Broadway Bound suite in the annual catalog.

Everything on this card comes from the kit.  The only exception is the card base, which I substituted for a plain Whisper White base.  I love the shiny gold sentiment (which I had a terrible time trying to photograph).


We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch!  We love to browse the gallery and visit your blogs.  Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. What a fun birthday card. I really like the ink splatters in the background, it adds that little bit more to make this a truly a fabulous card.

  2. What a fun and happy card!! I love the gold and your perfect blend of patterns. Thanks so much for a great sketch this week!

  3. Now that’s a fun birthday card. Love that shiny “hooray” and the balloons. I can totally sympathize with getting that shiny cardstock to show up in photos. Hardest thing ever! But you did a great job! 🙂
