For everyone that was a Paper Pumpkin Kit Subscriber in May you received a fun Birthday Bundle Kit.

Then this morning I wanted to create a different version of the card using the supplies in the kit.  And this is what I came up with.

Don’t forget today is the last day for the 50% off special I mentioned yesterday – there is still time!  I can’t wait to see what the June Kit is going to be.
