Seize the Birthday #274 Fall Items

It's Barb, your host for this last challenge of 2023 at 
Seize the Birthday. 
We will be back with more challenges for next year. Never fear! 
My challenge is this. Think of fall items. Like pumpkins, pies, vegetables, Jack-0-lanterns, Apples, Scarecrows, you get the idea. 

Remember if you use our toppings on your card, you have a chance to be a guest designer. 
We would love to have you. 

If you are not a toppings kind of crafter, just make sure that it is a 
birthday card
