Brown & Orange Challenge

I made this card for Meljen's Orange & Brown challenge. The background paper is from color book
And the cute little bear is one of my favorite Meljen's stamp. Since Brown and Orange are Cleveland Browns colors and I have 2 sons living in NE Ohio I figured this little bear should play for the Browns. He is colored with copics.

Mljen's blog challenge (Bingo)

 I choose to do the buttons, ribbon and eyelets.  I have so many Meljen stamps now, I forgot I had this one, don't think I used it before. I used lots of glitter paper, matting and the yellow backround are gitter papers. I made this from some of my older stuff so don't know who made the buttons, ribbon or eyelets. I did color with copics.
