Happy Birthday Punkin!

My Mom and Dad have called my daughter "punkin" all her life, so when my Mom asked if I would make my daughter's birthday card for her, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

I found this cute pumpkin image over at Whipper Snapper and stamped it onto some SU Very Vanilla CS. I colored it with my Lyra pencils and stitched around the edges. The card base is (do I need to say?) SU Kraft. Love my Kraft paper!! The patterned paper underneath is from My Minds Eye-Grow Collection. This is a really pretty paper collection. Now I know this is supposed to be a Fall stamp but I thought, hey I could make it work for a birthday, right? So, I punched two balloons with my Martha Stewart balloon punch and then drew in some string down to the vine, so it looks like he's holding the balloons. To finish it off, I printed the sentiment and attached it at the bottom. Hey, works for me! Actually, I think it fits her to a tee! We're having a family BBQ for her over at my parent's house today to start off her "birthday week"!! We're BIG on birthdays!! {he-he} Leave a comment below and let me know what you think. Have a great day!
