Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Thank You Card

I love simple.

You can’t imaging how many blog posts I start like that.
Maybe because I feel the pressure to explain why I’ve left my card design without the bells and whistles.

Stampin' Up! Pretty Pumpkins Card

But whatever the reason may be, I truly do love simple.

Stampin' Up! Pretty Pumpkins Card

I used the Pretty Pumpkins Bundle once before to make a non-traditional colors thank you card, which I LOVE. But I also really love orange pumpkins with hints of green and gold.

There’s nothing like new product.

The only hard part is deciding what to use first. But leaves and pumpkins are my favorite so the new Gorgeous Leaves Bundle was one of the first I pulled out.
