Paper Pumpkin Friday - Wonderful Winterland

November Kit
 
The November Paper Pumpkin  kit, Wonderful Winterland, is so wonderful!!  I love the blue color, the images and the stamp set.  You have probably seen all the fabulous cards and things made with this kit all over Pinterest and on Facebook. 

 
 
Today I am sharing my card creation from the kit.  I decided to make all my cards the same for an up coming swap.  The  vellum was stamped with the background stamp from the Christmas Pines stamp set with Whisper White Craft Ink.  Then I added a Dapper Denim background layer and some Dazzling Diamonds on the hill.  Attached the layers to an a retired piece of silver cardstock.  All done!!
