Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

Here in Arizona, it will be a while before signs of Autumn begin to appear but we still enjoy the seasonal celebrations and holidays of Halloween and Thanksgiving. This week I decided to use the sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #433 for my first fall card. This challenge began on Monday, August 9, and will end on Sunday evening, August 15, 2021.

In an ongoing, but not enthusiastic, effort to reduce the size of my paper stash, I used paper that I had on hand. Onto a black card base, I cut three rectangles from patterned paper and adhered them vertically. Using thin foam tape, I added the smaller rectangle horizontally. I found the pumpkin image with a sentiment in the paper packet so added it to the card with foam tape after fussy cutting. The inside of the card was lined with a panel of white cardstock and decorated with additional paper cuts. To finish the card, I added Autumn leaves. Wink of Stella was added to the leaves and pumpkin.
