Hi Everyone!

I wanted to share a SUPER quick card for a few challenges. Boy, I was just waiting to catch up on a bunch of things and GUESS WHAT? My little sis went into labor today. So We are headed down south for a couple days to meet our new niece. This is her second little girl - I LOVE BEING an Auntie!
Here is my spooky but kind of cute card - maybe cute - just a little??? Ok it's my last spooky card - I know how much my little boy doesn't want anything cute but now I'm over the spooky:) This is my last one!
The design is from the sketch over at retrosketches.
I created this skull head in my gypsy using the Indie Art Cartridge & Plantin Cartridge. I just welded a scallop shape (that I stretched) to the bottom of the skull.

Card - 5.5" x 4.25"
Paper - DCWV
Stamp - My creative Time
Buttons - MM
Border Trim - MS
Twine - Trendy Twine (My Craft Spot)
Challenges/Link Up Parties
Die Cuttin Divas shimmer-glimmer-gloss The polka dot paper is glittered and the green eyes are glossy paper.
