Fall Birthday

This week at Cooking It Up With Katie challenge #77 is to punch, include a pocket and a pair of something. 

This week our sponsor is Digital Delights. There's some really adorable Halloween images. If you like to stamp but don't like to color you're in luck, some of the images are already colored for you. For me, that's half the fun of making a card but it is time consuming. If I needed to make several cards (like Halloween party invitations) the already colored images would be a great help.

The pocket on my card was drawn freehand and is supposed to look like a pants pocket.  I'm not sure if I succeeded. 

The Stampin' Up library clip holds a bill sticking out of the top of the pocket. That the pocket is deep so the clip ensures the bill won't get lost.  .

The punches are Stampin' Up's oval and scalloped oval for the sentiment and there is a pair of buttons, one on each side of the sentiment, as well as a pair of brads on the pocket. 

Here's the deets:
stamp - Digital Delights
ink - Bic Marker for sentiment, hp printer
paper - Paper Pizzazz leave print; Recollections Printed Scrapbook Paper (olive with polka dots); Nicole orange cs; the Paper Cut "Red Hot" cs
miscellaneous - copics; mini brads; Stampin' Up oval and scalloped oval punch; buttons; burlap twine; sewing machine; Stampin Up library clip
