Here is the card details... The background is from the Fiskars harlequin charm clear stamp set which I picked up for only $2.99 at TJ Maxx (yep, a department store).Smiley from millan.netThen I inked the harlequin background with distress ink pad in black soot. Then finished with the super cool skull and some twine.

Hope you like it and have a wicked day!

Happy fall!

Hello friends, sorry for being MIA, work has been extremely busy. I finally have a chance to craft and a bit of relaxing. Here is a simple card that I made with the Memory Box autumn tree landscape. I just got it this morning and I love it so much that I have to ink it up. I inked it with versa mark and embossed with black embossing powder, then colored with Faber Castell watercolor pencils. And the beautiful sentiment is from Amuse.

Hope you like it!
