Absolutely Fabulous

I found a new challenge (well, new to me anyway) last week called the Play Date Cafe. They are having some fun color challenges over there with fabulous prizes - head on over there to check them out!

For Challenge #3 at the Play Date Cafe here are the colors:

I had a lot of fun with this one! Here is my card:

Love that skull! It is from the Cricut Indie Art cartridge. There is a swirl behind the skull that is also from that cartridge. I added some red glitter glue to the tips of the cross bones. I embossed the background with the Cuttlebug Perfect Paisley folder. On the left side I added some large brads I made with the i-Top. I stamped images from the Papertrey Ink Guidelines Two set for those brads.

This sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink Mega Mixed Messages set.

I have been using a lot of glass beads on twine lately, but I think it just gives the bows a more finished look.

Thanks for Looking!
