FTHS Pumpkin Patch Girl

This week on the FTHS blog, the optional twist is paper piecing. I recently bought Poppy Stamps "Pumpkins and Gourds" die set and was itching to use it, so I decided on a fall-themed card. Rather strange for the start of July, I know! But I have this sweet digi "Pumpkin Patch Girl" by FTHS and figured she'd be perfect with some of the little pumpkins from the set!
For my 5X7 inch card base, I embossed the front with a chicken wire embossing folder by Cuttlebug. Then I die cut a scalloped rectangle using a WaffleFlower die. I added the mini pumpkin die cuts popped up with foam squares to match the sketch and adhered my digi also using foam squares. I used digital paper piecing to color in the pumpkins, her dress and her shoes. 
 I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
