Happy Fall Ya'll...

Hi Friends!
How are you on this fine Thursday evening?  I was inspired to make a fall card for the challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room!  Such pretty pumpkins in the inspiration photo.  And, I've seen many homes decorated around town with pumpkins and mum plants.  It really puts one in the mood for fall.  The peak fall colors will be seen here in NW Ohio October 16-22.  I'm looking forward to taking photos of the wonderful fall color.  Ok, now onto my card...
For my card, I started with a tan card base and paired it with Carta Bella papers.  I colored little Emma with copics and cut her out with coordinating die Sweet Cuts-Emma.  I paper pieced her outfit, which is from the stamp set The Splendor of Autumn.  The large pumpkins are from the set Stand Add-on Scarecrow, small pumpkins and leaves from set Stand Add-on Fall Harvest, and the sentiment and kite are from the set Happy Fall Ya'll.  Ribbon, twine, and dew drops to finish off the card.  Well, that's all for now.  Thanks so much for taking time out to view my card today!  Take care!
