Greetings from Lynne....

Lynne's cardLynne Henderson is a PAPER PUMPKIN subscriber and used this month's box of creative supplies to make this cute Halloween card.  Did she follow the directions that come in the box?  NO.  Did she make all the Halloween favors included?  NO.  She used the supplies in the box to create her own card ~ one she designed using the stamp set and cut-out adhesive pieces in the box.  Which is perfectly OK! 

Thanks for sharing Lynne ~ a great way to use PAPER PUMPKIN!
