SOS22 - Dia De Los Muertos

Are you ready to dig in your stash again? Then get ready for another Shopping Our Stash challenge. This week we have a fun inspirational picture - cookies for the Day of Dead:
I can't wait to see what will you create..
And here is my card - with all the colors and flowers the cookies look quite girly to me so I wanted to make a girly card, but still use skulls...I found exactly ONE skull stamp in my whole stash, so no problems deciding which one to use - heeeheee. I stamped the skulls randomly over a quarter sheet of white CS, embossed them with white EP and then sponged TH Distress inks over the whole CS. Then I stamped blue swirls on one side and pink hearts on the other. Then just some lace, ribbon and a flower and a card is done. Leaves were originally green-brown, they are colored with black Sharpie. The sentiment is a digi from Sgt. Stamper and if you know where to find these, please let me know - I can't find my file, so I had to use the one I have printed on Kraft CS (insert roll eye smilie)

Challenges:
Crafty Cardmakers - cute with a dark twist
Stamptacular Sunday - anything goes
