BBTB2 - Happy Fall - Use a Pumpkin

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is time for another fun and inspirational Cricut challenge at BBTB2! I am happy to be hosting today. Hope you are enjoying Fall! I love this time of the year- the cooler weather and the pretty colors of the season. Pumpkins, gorgeous mums, and scarecrows have been selling fast! With that in mind, I chose Happy Fall/Pumpkin for our challenge this week. We want to see pumpkins, but No Halloween pumpkin. You can use any Cricut cartridge but remember the pumpkin must be a Cricut cut. We also ask that you tell us in your post which Cricut cartridge you used. Have fun! We look forward to seeing your pumpkins!
Cricut Cartridges:
Damask Decor - Page 68 - I used the pumpkin card feature for my card. The card base is cut at 5" from brick red cardstock.Using layer 1and 2,  the pumpkin is cut from green and the reddish orange papers and glued to the card base. Stripe paper on the inside is from K&Company TC Halloween and Fall paper pad. I also added a small piece of the same paper at the top corners of the card under the pumpkin.
Simply Scarecrow - This scarecrow is the third image on the first row and is cut at 3.5". Fall is cut at 1.5".
Cuttlebug: Polka Dots on the pumpkin and Divine Swirls on the green stem.
Other supplies include white Gelly roll pen for the doodling, pumpkin is pop-dotted, and twine bow from stash. Inking is Versa Magic Gingerbread.

Now it is your turn to play along! Remember the pumpkin must be a Cricut cut and no Halloween pumpkins. One person will be chosen to receive the Project of the Week badge. It could be you!
