The Cutting Edge Challenge #10

I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend! Yesterday we never got out of the 50's! It was magical! My daughter and I decorated the house with all of our fall decorations and then put a pumpkin pie Scentsy in the melter! Oh I love it!

It's time to share the next Cutting Edge Challenge!  We have another inspiration project, this one done by Jean! 

 Let yourself be inspired by Jean's  card, and create a card that includes die cutting (all forms accepted). 
 Here's what I did:

You know by now that I love creating little scenes, so when I saw Jean's card, that's the first thing I thought of. And since the weather is finally cooling down here, of course I wanted to do a fall scene :)
