Perfect Sentiments: "Falling For You"

Time for another challenge at The Perfect Sentiment!
This week's challenge is "Falling for You."
The challenge: create a card with a fall or Thanksgiving sentiment.
The twist: use some baker's twine.
Here is the card I created:
My card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4." I used a dark red cardstock for the card base. I then trimmed some striped cardstock 1/8" smaller. The striped cardstock is from the Indian Summer Stack by DCWV. The cream and gilded layer is 1/4" smaller than the striped layer. The gilded cardstock came from the Gilded Orchard Stack by DCWV. The pumpkin is cut from Sophie at 3 1/2." I embossed the orange layer with the Distress Stripes folder and my Cuttlebug. The red layer is covered in burgundy Stickles. I tied three pieces of baker's twine in a bow and used a glue dot to adhere it to the pumpkin. I adhered the pumpkin to the card with pop-dots. My sentiment is stamped on cream cardstock and matted with some gilded cardstock. I adhered it to the card, then added a pale burgundy pearl on each side.
I hope you enjoyed my card and I hope you come join us a The Perfect Sentiment. I can't wait to see what you create!
