Sharing All Things Fall with the Dueling Darlings

I'm late! I'm late! I'm late to the October Duel with the Dueling Darlings!  This month our teams were hosted by Katie for the Divas (my team) and Paola for the Dazzlers.  They chose the theme "All Things Fall" and Katie sent the Dueling Darling Divas this terrific kit filled with things that remind us of this season.  Here is what was in the kit:

Stamped Image:       Whipper Snapper
Stamped sentiments:  Stampin' Up and Papertrey Ink
Paper: Lawn Fawn
Miscellaneous embellishments:  ribbon, twine, brads and buttons

Here's my card:

I loved this darling pumpkin image and colored it with copic markers and fussy cut it.  Loved the terrific papers and used four of them.  I chose 2 of the ribbons and three of the brads to embellish this card and mounted the colored image on dimensionals.  I used Sketch #40 from Reverse Confetti as the basis for my card:
Katie asked us to share something we enjoy about Fall specific to the area we live in.  I now live in the Arizona desert, a transplant from NW Washington.  If I need to be specific about what I enjoy about Fall here in the AZ desert is the cooling temperatures.  Currently it's still pretty warm for mid-October.  Usually the highs have settled into the 80s but lately the warmer 90+ degree temps have been hanging on.  I do miss the changing colors of Autumn that were in western Washington.  In fact the Fall season is my favorite.  Love the warm colors of red, orange, gold and yellow against the evergreen trees like Douglas Fir and a brilliant blue sky in October....A favorite memory!
