Digi Stamp Freebie Challenge

Happy Wednesday My Bloggy Friends!

So I was blurfin the other day and I went to visit my friend Curt in Carmel and he is a member of the DT for "There's Magic In The Air" and every Monday they offer a freebie digi stamp. Well, this week's stamp really caught my eye and I had to have it, so when I went over to the site to grab it and saw the prize that was being given away.....well, I had to play along in hopes I might when that beautiful prize! So here's my card! Whatcha think?
Instead of coloring it like I normally would, I decided to do some paper piecing. I haven't done that in a very long time and I really love it and don't know why I don't try it more often. I printed the image three times, first on my card stock, second on the pink gingham and third on the green paper. I cut out only the flower top and the leaves and placed them on the base image.
I added a few rhinestones here and there and then stamped "i love you" (by Kim Hughes), added a bow and tah-dah.....a sweet little snippet card. BTW, a snippet card is the left overs I had of an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper after I cut out a 5 x 5 1/2 card. My snippet card measures 3 x 5 1/2...tall and skinny.
I hope you've enjoyed my card today, please join me tomorrow for a fun little card and some birthday wishes! *wink* HUGS!

I love the card sooo cute, Pink is one of my fave colors. About the Pumpkin,I went to the used book store and found a book that was aprox as tall as I wanted my pumpkin and one that was fairly thick so it would be full, then just start folding all the pages in Half,yep keep going, your almost there, just a little further, whew! oh and make sure its a paperback, hope this clears it up for you, Thanks for stopping by and commenting.......
