FALL BANNER REVISITED

I made this banner for my niece.  I did;t have a lot of time.  Luckily, I had a banner in my Gypsy from a few years ago.  That one said "Happy Thanksgiving"  She wants "Happy Fall".  The banner pieces are  a Spellbinders die.  The letters  are from Plantain Schoolbook, the turkey and pumpkin are on the Celebrate with Flourish Cartridge.  The patterned papers are Cloud 9, the solids are DCWV.  Vanessa picked out the purple color, I was a little hesitant-thought it would look to Halloweenie.  But I love it.  I am entering this into the fall challenge at  FCCB
