Paper Pumpkin for the Holidays

Welcome to this month's installment of the Jacksonville Starz Blog Hop. This month we are doing our first Sketch Challenge.

Here is the sketch...                          ...and here is my interpretation.

The majority of my card is created out of various pieces from the November 2014 Paper Pumpkin kit. The only parts that are NOT from the kit are the Large Oval Punch, Lost Lagoon and Whisper White cardstock, and the Playful Polka Dots embossing folder. Everything else is from the kit!

To create this card, I randomly stamped the snowflake with Lost Lagoon along the top of a Whisper White card base. The Lost Lagoon cardstock is embossed with the Playful Polka Dots embossing folder. I took one of the Snowflake cards and cut one of the snowflakes off. I also stamped the Happy Holidays greeting on the scraped card and punched it out with the Large Oval Punch. I attached one of the lost lagoon snowflakes to the big blue snowflake and cut off the excess. Then I used the little circles (scraps) from the foil reinforcements to further embellish the snowflake.
