Okay show of hands: who’s all about pumpkin everything for fall? ?That’s what I thought! ?Pumpkins are iconic for autumn, and this simple die-cut card can send some fall cheer anyone’s way. ?I assembled this little card in about 10 minutes with some of the new Rachael Bright dies for Sizzix, in non-traditional colors – which I think makes it that much more fun!
