PPP Blog Hop - Joy to the World

 Hello Everyone and welcome to the October Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! 

Have FUN and be INSPIRED as you hop along with us tonight!

This months kit is so pretty and has so many possibilities!


This month, I chose to stay traditional but bring the card up a notch!


I used my Sponge Brayer to add Mint Macaron to the embossed background (it was white to start with).  It is mounted onto a 3 1/8" x 4 1/4" piece of Early Espresso cardstock.  I added some gold thread from the Forever Greenery Ribbon pack along with some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots. 
Simple with a bit of elegance!

Up next is the very talented Janey Backer at Inspired Stamping!



Hey...thanks for hopping long with us tonight!  

If you haven't already subscribed to Paper Pumpkin do it before November 10th and if you don't have a demonstrator already....I'd love it if you chose me!  

Here's a teaser about November's kit....I think I'll order a few!!
