Simply Betty Stamps Challenge - On the Seventh Day of Halloween....

My ghoul gave to me...7 skeletons!!

Here is my skeleton card!!

I used an image that reminds me VERY much of Keith Haring.  Hence the bright coloring =)

I printed my image out, and then used my pastel chalks to color.  I kept it simple and quiet with the exception of his heart. 

I trimmed the image out and set it aside.

I ended up with a fusion of Halloween and Valentine's Day!!  I do love how it came out.  My cardbase is 5" square.  I inked the edges with grey charcoal chalk ink.
I then added a slice of 4.75" sq black cardstock with white stars from PTI.  I added my images on 3-D foam adhesive and ran a strip of felt heart ribbon along the bottom.
As a final touch, I added black pearls sporadically throughout the dots on the image.  I hope you enjoy and have been inspired!  You'll LOVE what my fellow DT sisters have created!!  Please check them out and leave lots O love!!
