Pumpkin smiles

     Our challenge this week at Mo's Digital Pencil is "Autumn Fun". So I decided to combine a couple of Mo's images, "Punkin" and "Pumpkins" and use them to create a little wall hanging.  This measures about 7" around.  I used a 6" base of chipboard cut with a Fiskars Circle cutter and covered it with kraft paper.  The decorative border was made using a Martha Stewart border punch.  Just in case you don't know how to do this I'll be posting a tute next week.  Under the border I used some paper ribbon that I cut in short lengths and folded over.  Some leaves from a decorative fall flower pick finish it off.
     You can find both of the images in Mo's store along with all the cuties my team mates have used this week.  Be sure to check out their wonderful work.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC.  I know it's talking about jack-o-lanterns but the thought sure fits for this little guy too.
     Linda also started a new challenge at the Catered Crop Sunday where the theme is "Circle Round"  We want to see your projects created with circles or circle shapes.
     I'd like to enter this project into the following challenges:

A & T Emerald Faeries--anything goes
Kaboodle Doodles--pumpkin patch or fall
Anything But a Card--fall, Halloween, or fall colors
Great Impressions--fall
Joanna Sheen--Autumn Breeze
