Thanks a Latte for being my daughter

My darling little daughter turns FIVE on Thursday and I needed to make her a quick card before we jumped in the car for her birthday roadtrip.  I love Paper Pumpkin because the kits come with so many great supplies and stamp sets.  Sometimes I forget that you can combine them with other stamps and get great creations with hardly any effort.

I recently purchased the Talented Trio stamp set because Callie is an artist and a ballerina and she loves to play in the snow.  I took the components from the July Thanks a Latte Paper Pumpkin kit and combined them with this set and with my retired Blendabilities.  The result: A wonderful card perfect for my little wonderful girl.

I really love the tiny bow in her hair, made by taking the ribbon off the clip and pulling the ends until it was the right size for her little head.  I would have stamped her on the gray and cut out the dress so it had a pattern but it was time to get everyone in the car!

You can see more great ideas with this kit on My Pumpkin Challenge.  Check out these great designers!

Paper Pumpkin keeps me creative in a pinch and there is currently a great deal if you want to join up!
