Hi Everyone,

As soon as I saw the new Scary Skull stamp that was recently released at DRS Designs, my thoughts turned to a photo I took on vacation in San Diego.  I think it was somewhere in Temecula/the southern California wine country, that I snapped this:

I knew I wanted to take inspiration from it for my card...My teammate Nancy had the same thought, and made a fantastic Day of the Dead card in this post here.  I decide to go the colorful route, and stamped, fussy cut and decorated my skulls using these stamps and my own doodles:

I wrapped my embossed background with some printed ribbon and added the new 

I had originally made three skulls for the front, but what I had in mind didn't work out, (Plan A never works out for me!), so I brought the extra skull to the inside.

I finished it off using the new Deco Happy Halloween stamp and the Scroll Corner Tile stamp again. 

Spooky greetings to you and yours...
Have a great day!

Karin, that inspiration photo from your vacation is so cool, and you did an excellent job with your skulls. Fun colors and fun designs - I love them! The new skull stamp is actually very fun to play with, and I love that expect the unexpected greeting. Fun, fun, fun. Hugz

How fun is this, Karin! Love your harlequin ribbon & sugar skulls. Great colors on this. How funny that so many of us had the same idea. I have sugar skull type one, too.
