Happy Pumpkin Day Tags and Gate Fold Card

Hey Everybody!  It's time for a new challenge over at Bitten by the Bug 2!  This week Caroline has chosen a pumpkin theme for the challenge.  All you  have to do to enter is make a card or other project with a pumpkin.  

For the challenge, I decided to make a gate-fold card and some tags to attach to some pumpkin-scented soaps.  These will be little Halloween gifts for my kids' teachers!  I'm really pleased with how they came out.
I saw Mary with CardsTV make this gate-fold card the other day, and I just knew I wanted to try one too!
Hope you'll check out my video below too!  

Pumpkins are from Create-a-Critter
Tags are from Sweet Treats

Pumpkins from Create-a-Critter 2 and cut at 3 in. and 4 in.
