Pumpkin sparkle

It is always so much fun to make my own patterned background. Before I even knew what the full design of my card was going to be, I started by just stamping the leaves and pumpkins from the Pretty Pink Posh Giving Thanks stamp set in various directions.

Once I finished the background, I decided that the sentiment would be cool if it was hidden behind a Peekaboo Window die cut.


At first, I worried that the card might look odd without a sentiment or any other stamped images besides the background. But, adding Twine and Bows die cuts added just enough. I love that the card is interactive.

I finished the card by adding tons of clear Wink of Stella to all the images.

I am entering my card into the following challenge:


Thanks for looking, and have an awesome day! :)
