Dia de los Muertos

   This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is Dia de los Muertos; I love this inspiration picture!  I searched my stash for a skull and some coordinating floral paper.  I came up with this:
  The skull and "happy halloween" sentiment is a BasicGrey Eerie sticker.  The papers are also from my BasicGrey Eerie 6x6 pad.  The black gems were on clearance a few years ago at Michael's.  I added some faux stitching using my paper piercer and my black journaling marker.

  I hope this challenge inspires you to create and link your project at Shopping Our Stash.

Happy Tuesday!

Ooooh I LOVE this line of paper & absolutely love the hand drawn stitching!! I'm definitely going to try this soon as it's such a pain to pull out the sewing marching. Love the glittery skull too!
