Day 19 of 31

Hello Lovelies,   I have for you today a card I made for Day of the Dead and also for the Bombshell Pin Up challenge.  This month our Pin Up challenged us to use pink in our cards in honor of  Breast Cancer Awareness month!  Now using pink is no problem for me anymore, I used to have a hard time using it but not anymore.  BUT using pink in 31 days!!!  That made me stop in my tracks for a minute!  Then I thought I’ll use the Alter Skulls set from Bombshell stamps!  So that’s what I did… Now the layout of this card is a little different for me and I’ll be honest with you, I started this off with making an ATC in mind.  Paying no attention to details in the beginning I neglected to realize that the Alter skull was bigger than an ATC!!! So card it is!!!  I used vanilla cardstock and craft cardstock that was smeared and smudged(LOL) with distress inks!   Gathered twigs, tattered rose, and seedless preserves. I wrinkled the original ATC size piece and then mounted it on other cardstock!  Anyway, I hope you enjoy it!  Please head on over to the Bombshell blog  to see what everyone else has made for you today!!!

Wow, you really made lemonade with this one! The way you mounted the lovely images of skull, and candles and roses onto the cardface is inspired! And the smeared Distress Inks make a beautiful background -gotta try that.
