I was SO excited to see a favourite sketch challenge come back this week - Mojo Monday! I needed a birthday card for my friend's daughter and set to work. She is born on Halloween, 5 days after my son! Jamie and I grew up across the street from each other, so it is pretty neat to have our kids so close in age.
Last October I was stoked to see the arrival of a beautiful fall set from Verve stamps. I fully intended on making a few fall cards with it, but SURPRISE! Harvey decided to come a few weeks early and then once I got back into my craftroom the snow was flying :). I knew that I wanted to incorporate these Verve pumpkins somehow without making a full on Halloween card. I had intended on colouring the pumpkins but ended up quite liking them in the white. This sweet little owl seemed to be fitting and I know I'll get lots of use out of this October birthday set from Papertrey Ink. Finally, I paired all of this with some fun paper I received from Lawn Fawn in my package - check out the name of it! I am linking up with the Lawn Fawnatics "bling it out" challenge and the "animal antics" challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. I also decided to make a little matching tag to go along with the card!

Paper - White Daisy, Black, Kraft, Silver glitter (CTMH); Wicked Witch Line Dance (Lawn Fawn)
Stamps - Jump for Joy (Lawn Fawn); Birthday Classics: October (PTI); Falling Leaves (Verve)
Dies - Stitched Circles (SSS); Falling Leaves (Verve); Shaker Tag 1 (Studio Katia)
Ink - Archival Black (CTMH); Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed distress ink (Tim Holtz)
Markers - N65, N95, 933 (Tombow)

FabricLand released some NHL prints this fall and I thought it would be cute to do up Brooklyn's gift in a little bag of her Daddy's favourite team.
