DIA DE MUERTOS! with Skullies Card Number 3

Today I thought it might be fun to go south of the boarder and celebrate Día de Muertos...or known here as Day of the Dead. For this card I started with a cream color card base and layered on black card stock then I used a piece of 7 gypsies paper from their Gypsy Pack to form the base of the Polaroid mat at the top I stamped my BOO! sentiment stamp by Studio 112 three times. I inked a paper cupcake Dolley and attached to back of the Polaroid base. Then I cut out my skullie image from Gecko Galz DAY OF THE DEAD collage set and created the Polaroid.
Next I ran a piece of black lace at the bottom of the image then on top ran a strip of May Arts Ribbon. I tied a bow using the same ribbon and placed it in the center and dangled a skeleton cameo I found at the 99 cent store (in the jewelery section).
To finish I added 6 bling to the doillie.
Ole now you are set to celebrate!
For another fun idea create the Polaroid card and instead of the skullie image add a picture of a party goer in their costume and hand out as party favors at the end of the night!
Happy Haunting!
