I absolutely love the Mexican Day of the Dead sugar skulls - and I think Teri's Creepmas style sugar skull surrounded by holly leaves and pretty berries is just fabulous! I printed the image on white card, coloured it with Copic markers, cut it out with a die and then added sparkle with my clear Wink of Stella brush and glitter. I used my new WOS brush - so there's a bit more sparkle than I'd normally like! I think the image is so beautiful that I decided to finish it off with a lovely frame. I die cut this frame from some winter design paper and layered it on a red card base. On the inside I cut a white panel, added some decoration and a greeting. Here's a close up of the sugar skull with sparkle and glitter. I'm submitting this to this week's Just Us Girls Challenge - JUGS270 where the word is SPARKLE. I've got lots of sparkle on this card - it might be a bit left of centre, but it sure does sparkle!! Hope you ladies like it.
Here's the list of everyone taking part in the 12 Days of Creepmas challenge. Do check out their work - some of these ladies make the most amazing 3D projects - something that I might have to try!!

I think that today I'm going to have to get some housework done - my ironing pile is getting bigger and bigger. That's all for now - have a great day. See you soon.
