Skull Appreciation Day

Today is national Skull Appreciation Day and so Bombshell Stamps is joining up with Smeared and Smudged Images for a blog hop.  For this special day I created a special card using my all time favorite skull image, Mi Amor.  For this classy lady I chose some classy papers from DCWV's Luxury Papers Pad.

     The camera doesn't really show it but these papers are all pearlized.  They just shimmer beautifully.  I embossed my image than paper pieced her with some lovely dark purple and added some Tattered Angels Pearl Shimmer to her face.

     I really like this image and love using her in cards.  The only problem is she doesn't appeal to a lot of people so I never know who to send them to.  Ah well, the joy really is in the creation of this card.

     Now if you would like to join up with the Skull appreciation day blog hop just pop on over to the Bombshell Blog and go for it.
