Episode 13 Pumpkin slider card

Hi Crafters!!! Happy I have another video in my video series using the Cricut and Gypsy..I am making a Pumpkin slider card.

I made a cupcake slider card a few weeks ago, and I just loved I thought I would try the same technique with some other images...I think this one turned out just as cute!

What do you think?

I added a little black bow on the top of the pumpkins just looked to plain for me..
