I realized recently how much I have neglected my Cricut so I decided I've got to get back to using it more and so I have.  Besides making simple little treat boxes for this year's trick or treaters, (see previous post) Emma's My Creative Time Throwback Thursday Challenge this week was just the thing to get me going. 
The challenge is to use the card feature from any cartridge and to make it a Halloween card.  Easy enough.  I found a cute Halloween card on the Wild Card cartridge, not very imaginative I know but hey..... I didn't totally take the easy way out.  I didn't like the face the pumpkin from the Wild Card cut had so I substituted the face from the pumpkin on Gypsy Wanderings.  Here's the card with the new face.
New Face
Original Face
Because this is a cut-away card, it makes the inside a little awkward, but I remedied that by putting a spot for a gift card right behind the pumpkin and I'll be using a metallic gold pen when I sign it and that ties in nicely with the little stars. 
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend and I hope even more that you'll come again soon.
