I have another card for you today that showcases the Pretty Pumpkins Bundle.  On Monday we saw the Pumpkin trio stamp used to create a Pumpkin Patch.  Today I'm using the pretty pumpkin designed with the leaves of autumn.  Whether you are a fan of walking through the leaves or of raking them up, so you don't have to walk through them, you have to admit that this is really a unique and pretty pumpkin.  And the best thing is, these leaves do not require raking!

The colors today are true Autumnal colors and were once again inspired by the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I layered three different patterns of this beautiful paper on Bumblebee mats.  Using multiple shapes and sizes of mats is a fantastic way to show off pretty DSP.   Plus, you get the bonus of an interesting layout.  

You can check out all the colors and patterns of the Beauty of the Earth in the Product List below. 

The focal point of the card is the circular mat where two pumpkins are layered.  The top Cajun Craze Pumpkin is die cut with a die from the Pretty Pumpkins bundle.  The Bumblebee pumpkin was stamped with the pretty pumpkin stamp that is covered with leaves.  It was also then cut with another die from the Pretty Pumpkins Bundle.  The leaves are also cut with dies from the Detailed Pumpkins Dies and that variation of color on the leaves is thanks to another pattern from the Beauty of the Earth DSP.
Isn't the font on the "gather together" sentiment beautiful.  I just love a pretty script font that is also easy to read.  I stamped the sentiment with Cajun Craze and easily die cut it with a Tailor Made Tag Die.  A little snippet of Bumblebee ribbon tied with Linen Thread adds the finishing touch.

To finish the inside, I added a strip of the same leaf pattern used on the front.  It is layered on another strip of Cajun Craze and then adhered to the side of the Basic White cardstock.  

As I was looking for a nice sentiment for the inside of today's card, I realized I did not have a current sentiment stamp that was exactly what I had in mind for my card. So, I went on a search of my stash and found this very old one.  It is so old that it is mounted on a wood block.  But while it may be an old stamp, the sentiment is just as good for 2021 as it was years ago when I bought it.  This is why I rarely get rid of my sentiment stamps.  I think the person I have in mind to send this card to will appreciate it, so even though it is old, I'm going to use it!
