Punchy Pumpkin

My upline, Rosalie, is an absolute whiz with punches and I think it may be starting to rub off on me (just a little!).  I was playing around with the Large Oval punch and some scraps of Pumpkin Pie textured cardstock and came up with a cute little pumpkin, with leaf, stem and tendril.  He sat on my desk, faceless, for a few weeks waiting for me to think of something to do with him.  Last night I decided to try to make a face for him, using only punches.  I used the Large Oval punch and took a bite out of a scrap of black cardstock, then I went in deeper with the Small Oval punch to get the "grin".  The eyes and nose were made with a (non-SU) hand held heart punch.

I think he turned out kinda cute.  What do you think?
