This card is an quick and easy alternative that I made inspired by the August Paper Pumpkin - The Gift of Fall & Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle from Stampin' Up!

For the top mat for this card I trimmed one of the Cards from the Add-On Bundle as shown.  The standard size bottom mat is cut from Merry Merlot CS.

I stamped the top mat with the berry stamp from the PP Kit in Merry Merlot Ink as shown.

The 2 green leaf branches are leftover pieces from The Sept. 2017 Layered Leaves PP Kit and were attached with Tape Runner as shown.  One of my favorite things about the Paper Pumpkin Kits is that there are generally lots of leftover bits and pieces that can be saved for other projects such as this one.

The 2 leaves were cut from Daffodil Delight CS using the Gathered Leaves Die Set.  I used a Sponge Dauber with Pumpkin Pie Ink to shade the leaves & edges. They were partially attached with Tape Runner.   I didn't put any adhesive on the tips so that I could slightly lift the leaves for some added dimension.

The sentiment is from the PP Kit and was stamped  on a scrap piece of Whisper White CS and cut with one of the label dies from the Smooth Sailing Die Set.  It was popped up with Dimensionals.

The completed top piece was attached to the bottom mat and then to a White Card Base with Tape Runner.

Lastly I added a couple of Gold Sequins from the PP Kit.
