MFTeaser - à la mode Sweetest Pumpkin in the Patch

Welcome to day five of seven fabulous days of MFT teasers! Today is à la mode day and there are two cuties (as usual), Sweetest Pumpkin in the Patch and Fight Like a Girl.

I've used à la mode Sweetest Pumpkin in the Patch and the layout is MFTWSC34, which I missed when I was off in August. It's never too late to play, right?

I used the new Postage Border die-namic on the front of the card but it may not be quite evident, because I used the negative cut off instead of the positive die-cut piece. I really LOVE the bumpy look of the negative. I used the positive part of the die-cut on the inside, so it was like cutting two things at once.

The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copies. I paper pieced the pumpkin with one of the patterns from the Stella Rose Mabel collection by My Mind's Eye. The new oval tab die-namic was a perfect spot for the sentiment.

Here's the inside with using the postage border die-namics.
