This was the perfect challenge for me because I am one of those crafters that sees things that would just be perfect for a card, and I keep them. Needless to say, a lot more sits unused than used. :) For my card, I started with the sketch at Create with Connie and Mary.
If you are getting the My Paper Pumpkin, you know that each kit comes lovely wrapped in beautiful Pool Party tissue paper. So that HAD to make an appearance on my card. :) I also just received something that was wrapped in some nice little bubble wrap so I wanted to use that too.
I used the tissue paper to make a flower using this tutorial from splitcoaststampers. They actually used facial tissue instead of tissue paper, but I just cut my tissue paper to the size they suggested and it worked just fine. My tissue paper was kind of tore up from my excitement of opening my My Paper Pumpkin, so my flower is very...distressed we will call it. lol I colored the edges with a Bermuda Bay marker and added a pretty vintage brad in the center. For my background, I colored on the bubble wrap with Pool Party, Summer Starfruit and Bermuda Bay markers, then pressed it onto Whisper White cardstock. I love how it turned out! My sweet little Easton wanted to pop the bubbles when I was done and I was like "Back AWAY from the bubble wrap!" I may need it in the future! :)
