Here's my project:

I just smile every time I see this little bear :)

I used paper from Close to My Heart called Moonlight.  I cut the card shape using our exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge.  The card shape can be found on page 32, A2, Card, < 2 > cut at 4 1/2".  I cut the square on top of the card base from page 48, B8, Shift, Card, < I > cut at 4 1/4".  The bat card was ALSO cut using the Artiste -- love it!  You can find the image on page 76, E6, Card, < Eek >.  I used Black cardstock.

For that cute little bear, I used Cricut's Teddy Bear Parade cartridge.  He was cut at 3".  The teddy bear is key A1, < TddyBear > cut at 3".  His pumpkin costume is key D3, < Pmpkin > also cut at 3".  I used Black, Sweet Leaf, Smokey Plum, Sunset, and Autumn Terracotta cardstock to make him.   I then edged the pumpkins costume, hat and bag with Autumn Terracotta ink.

Finally, I cut the sentiment "Trick or Treat" from the Elmo and Friends Holiday Cricut cartridge using White cardstock and edging it with Smokey Plum ink.  You can find it on page 41, C1, Phrase, < Elmo13 > cut at 1 1/4".
