Have a Fabulous Fall!!!

 I stamped the image 3 times using VersaMark.  The image on white cardstock was heat embossed with Ultrafine Black Embossing Powder.  The image on the tiny check was heat embossed with Leaf Zing Embossing Powder.  The tiny print was heat embossed with Apricot Zing Embossing Powder.
The pumpkins were then trimmed and paper pieced onto the White Cardstock.
I colored the stems, leaf, and ground with Distress Markers by Ranger.
 The base of the card was cut with my largest Spellbinders Scalloped Nestibility, leaving the fold just inside the cutting area so that it remained intact.
I then cut a smaller scalloped circle to use as a mat on the card.
I stamped the sentiment on a strip of cardstock and heat embossed it.  I placed a tiny orange brad on one side of the strip and cut a "V" into the other end to create a tiny banner.
I finished off the card by punching two tiny holes in the fold of the card and tying a bow with a little piece of hemp twine.
