Today's MISM project is a quick card that features a pumpkin created with oval punches, "Orchard Harvest" designer paper, and "Natural Composition" designer paper.  I love how the printed pattern on the Natural Composition paper resists ink and adds texture.  I used Stampin' Up!'s Wide Oval and Large Oval punches to build the pumpkin layers, and I sponged the papers with Tangerine Tango and Early Espresso inks.  The leaves are from the "Little Leaves" Sizzlits die, and I just cut the parts that I wanted to use on my pumpkin.  The pumpkin was finished with a Soft Suede stem, and I added a sweet sentiment from the "Loving Thoughts" stamp set. 

What do you think about my new blog banner?  I designed it with Stampin' Up!'s MDS2 software.  It's definitely not one of my better banners, but at least it's Fall-ish.  My creative mojo seems to be taking a little break, but I feel sure that it will return . . . sooner rather later, hopefully.

Have a great week!

Love the new banner. Yes, it has less "going in" on than normal, but it is sort of like Fall--- easy on the eyes and laid back! Smiles, Laura
