Can you smell Fall in the air?

Hello and happy Saturday stamping friends!  Today I have a Fall themed card for you all that I have made for this weeks Shining the Light Challenge over at ODBD. Can you believe that this is the 77th challenge? Chris, is challenging us this week to use a Fall theme or Fall colors on our creations and I did both :D

For the Fall theme and colors I used this amazing pumpkin stamp and pumpkin custom die by ODBD. I tell you, using this awesome die, it made it easy as pie (kind of rhymes,hehe) to cut the image. I also got to use some awesome new Spellbinders dies I just got last week....so fun.

Have a look at my creation

You are handpicked by God




and a shot from the opposite side




Recipe:

Paper: PTI Rustic Cream, Dark Chocolate, textured cream cs from my stash, Me&MyBigIdeas specialty paper (Fall)

Stamps: ODBD Pumpkin, Garden Tag Set (for the sentiment)

Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Vintage Photo

Accessories: Spellbinders Picot Edge Circles, Labels 23, Twisted Metal Tags & Accents, ODBD custom die Pumpkin, Making Memories lace, Crystal Bling, cross charm, MayArts Natural Twine

What do you think, does this card say Fall?
