BasicGrey challenge #63

Hi all!

I am entering my card into BasicGrey challenge #63. The theme was "wish upon a star". I had a hard time interpreting this so just used a designer paper with little white stars. The Basic Grey product I used was a brown distressed looking paper from the Sultry collection.

This card will be for a card drive going on at Mission Possible's website for Operation Priceless.
It is very easy to cooperate- just send a card or cards, handmade. They can be from your stash. No need to send an envelope, as these will be inside care packages. They just need the cards to add to care packages which they will be giving out. Inside, you just write or print out and attach one of the phrases included in theSpanish or Creole leaflets on the inside of the card. No need to write anything else, just one of the phrases. You can sign them if you'd like to. Just please keep in mind to not use any images which could be taken as offensive due to the cultural difference. In the links provided, there's info on which images not to use. I am going on the safe side and using animal images. You could also use floral images or nature images or perhaps toy images. And please use strong adhesive, as the destination of these cards is hot and humid. I live in the Caribbean myself and have had problems with layers coming clean off, but since switching to ATG Scotch tape that has not happened. 

Here's the card:

This image came from my stash. It had wings and bug antennas but I cut those off and just kept the teddy bear body. 

supplies used:
stamp- unknown from stash
ink- black
Copic colors: W5, W7, R11, E33, E35, E37, E99, Y06, Y08
card stock: smooth blue; Georgia Pacific white
patterned paper: blue paper with white stars is by Frances Meyer; distressed looking brown paper is by BasicGrey from the Sultry collection

Thanks for looking!
