Mojo Week 110: Autumn Pumpkin

Here is my take on Sketch 110 from Mojo Monday! This is one of my favorite challenges to play along with, as the sketches are always so well-balanced and versatile. Here's the sketch:
I had some difficulty getting started on this card, since I couldn't decide whether to do a Christmas theme or a Fall theme; but as you can see, autumn won out this time. I may go back and do a Christmas card in awhile; but I tend to get into a certain mode, or theme... and I have to play it out until my scraps of the papers I've cut down dwindle sufficiently before I start on new ones. Luckily I have some Christmas cards left over from last year.... so my procrastination won't have dire consequences. :)
Here's a little image detail:
