Smeared Ink Monday - Skelly Chic!

Good Morning All!!  I hope everyone's had a great weekend!!
I was busy crafting and organizing all day yesterday.  So relaxing!  My card today uses a true mish mash of goodies that I found hanging around my craft table.  I used Smeared Ink's 'As Death' set, combined with a rustic color palette of chocolate and light browns, greens, blues and assorted neutrals.

I used my Cricut to cut oval in order to add extra dimension to my focal image of the skeleton.  I bundled a collection of vintagey chic yet messy grouping of pearls, rhinestones, stamped images, felt stickers and ribbon on the left hand side to compliment and balance my bold and large focal image. 
I hope you have enjoyed and been inspired by my creation today.  I really love the combination of the dark image yet the light and elegant balance of the clustered embellishments!

Thanks for popping by today!!  Come hang out with us on the SI forum!!  There is always something fabulous going on there!

Entering into the following challenges:
