Our Little Pumpkin

Hello and happy Friday!!! A friend of mine asked if I could come up with a simple invitation for her daughter's first birthday in October. She wants the theme to be "Our little pumpkin is turning one!" I had this pumpkin stamp that I got last fall in the Michael's $1.00 bin, and I thought it would be cute if I could make this little Whipper Snapper Bella stamp look like she was leaning against it. I stamped Bella twice and cut one out to use as a mask. I then stamped the pumpkin. I think it turned out really cute! I computer generated the sentiment using Harrington font and punched it out with my SU Modern Label Punch. I added a couple of rhinestones for a little bling, and some Stickles to the pumpkin leaf. That's about it! Hopefully she'll like it, and thank you so much for stopping by today!
