Loving the November My Paper Pumpkin!

My November My Paper Pumpkin arrived yesterday and I just LOVE it! It is definitely my favorite one so far and I am glad I have stuck with it. I am in love with the cute strings of stitched stars and made sure to use them sparingly so I would have some left over for other projects. I used this simple sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for a quick holiday card:
The sentiment from the Noel kit also worked well for this sketch, as it is long and skinny.
I stamped the sentiment and then decided to add the stars in silver. It still looked a little empty so I hand cut a banner and used the negative to sponge in over the sentiment so it wasn't just hanging in space.  The stars just take a dab of Tombow Multi glue on the back of each one to secure them in place.  I don't have a sewing machine (nor do I hand sew!) so I just adore these and wish we would sell something similar!
