Autumn Crow Tag - Meljen's Challenge

Hi ya everyone!
  This week at Meljen's Design we are having a wonderful challenge - Tags!  I used Meljen's Design stamp called Autumn Crow.  Isn't he adorable?   Before I move on to my card - a few things - first - there's an awesome new release at Meljen's this week - take a look!
So cute right?  Oh my gosh - I had such a hard time picking something because all of them are too stinking cute!  Now that you want all of them - head over to Whimsy Stamps!!!  Also, if you didn't catch my post earlier in the week - Meljen's is now in rubber!!! For all you rubber stamp lovers - you will want some - and get this they are rubber exclusive - I think I might have to turn a new leaf and get a few!!!  Here they are!

Now, on to my tag.  I love the Autumn Crow image - and I was able to find some fun paper from My Mind's Eye called blackbird!  It matched the image perfect!!  I also used the Happy Fall freebie image from Meljen's.  First, I cut out a tag shadow and tag from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More, on my Expressions.  I layered the two papers.  Now, I took the backside of the Black Bird Paper and mounted my Autumn Crow and Happy Fall onto it. I then added a piece of black paper to the background lopsided from the Autumn Crow.  I added some swirly bling and took these leave buttons and added those. 

Finally, I added some raffia and a black sheer ribbon with a leaf button to the tag.  I love the way this tag turned out - my daughter wants to give it to her teacher for a fall present!!  Thanks for looking - head on over to Whimsy Stamps and pick up a few and participate in the challenge at Meljen's! You could win some more awesome digitals!!!
