This birthday bundle paper pumpkin kit has been a fun one! I do say that about most of them though. If you look closely at the balloon strings... and then at the tails coming from the happy birthday sentiment... yes, they are the same stamp! 

What I did:
 1. I cut the card in half & trimmed the striped side down to 3 1/2"x4 1/4" and mounted it on the Island Indigo side & then onto a white card base.

2. I flipped the patterned paper around & stamped the sentiment on the white side. I liked keeping the accents on this card to Island Indigo & white. 

3. I stamped & heat embossed the balloons & tails with white embossing powder. My Island Indigo fine tip marker did a nice job of accenting those balloons. 

Now because there wasn't room for the curl after birthday... I got to make another card...

 Here you can see it that swirl in full glory... 

I heat embossed the happy birthday first with white embossing powder, then repeated with the swirls. I had an easier time lining it up that way. Then a little bermuda bay ink & a sponge to add the definition... and a little larger circle in daffodil delight to frame the white one that came with the kit.... 

I've got some more ideas to show what I've all made with this kit... They will be coming up shortly! (and while you wait... check out this Paper Pumpkin Challenge Blog by clicking on the blog button below...)
