MC Sept/14 - Skull - Something Wicked

I won a couple digi's from Aurora Wings in Card Makin Mamas challenge #88, and this skull with flowers is one of them. I love the look of it... so of course I had to make a Halloween card. BIG GRIN.

I printed out the digi in reverse mode on white cardstock then side folded it (5"w x 7"h). Colored with Prisma colored pencils.

Stamped the quote (Quietfire Design "Halloween Wicked Collection") using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Adhered some purple and orange ribbon on top of each other. Used Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and my hard rubber hammer to selectively emboss areas. Sponged over them with a dirty purple sponge. Stamped the faux stitching (Stampers Anonymous Tim's "Spring Sprung" set) using Versafine "Imperial Purple". Used the purple colored pencil to add stripes above the ribbon.

Die cut the buttons from some previously decorated orange cardstock. Tied purple metallic threads through the holes then adhered to card.
