Wrapped In Love - Meljen's Challenge Anything Goes!!

Hi Ya Everyone!
  Back again with a new challenge and release from Meljen's Designs.  First, here's the awesome release.  I absolutely love this set of stamps!  Melissa has gone beyond adorable here for Halloween!  Ok, Ok, I'll shut up and just show you!

Aren't they too cute - go to Whimsy and get them for yourselves!  You can find all of Meljen's other stamps too - and don't forget she has a rubber line you can order now!  I decided to use mummy bear for this card.

First, I took a 5x5 inch card base and cut a 4.75 x 4.75 inch square from my Capella basic grey to wrap some sheer ribbon around.  Next, I printed out my mummy bear and colored him with Copics.  I only used the warm grey tones so he would match my paper.  The bear was cut with my circle nestables and then mounted on a tan piece of card stock.  I also mounted the basic grey on the same card stock.  Last, I blew up the stars on the bear and printed them on the brown paper and cut those.  Some are popped and others are adhered flat. 

Thanks for looking and don't forget to head over to Meljen's challenge blog to play!! Anything Goes - so there's no reason to not join in on the fun!
