A Little Halloween Decor - Meljen's Design Challenge

Hi ya everyone!
  This week at Meljen's Designs our challenge for you is to create something for Halloween!!!  I love Halloween for so many reasons.  Since this is the first year I've really been crafting that Halloween has rolled around I'm busy making decorations for our place.  I decided to make this long little sign using three cute Meljen digi's! Aren't they adorable?  I used ghost cutie, scaredy cat, and country star pumpkin.  They can all be found here

First, I colored these three cuties with Copics.  I cut them out using my circle nestables.  I also cut with my nestables a brown background circle so they would pop more on the Jack-O-Lantern paper from Basic Grey.  I cut Happy Halloween out on my Expressions using the Nursery Rhyme font.  I welded the shadow letters together and cut them in the same brown cardstock and then adhered these orange letters. 

This was a cute and easy project for Halloween. Don't forget to participate in the Halloween challenge at Meljen's!!!
