Bombshell Hop - A VERY Skelly Halloween!

Greetings fabulous Bombshells!!  I'm hopping today along with my fellow teamies and friends over at Bombshell  for our monthly hop today!  The theme?  A Very Skelly Halloween!  But first - if you've just happened upon here today or popped by to say hi please jump HERE so that you can see everyone's gorgeous creations!  If you are hopping along you should be arriving from Torrey's blog! 

I have a VERY simple creation for you today but I was in need of a lot of things like this so I kept them simple in order to make quite a few (you'll notice I don't use the word "Mass Produce" - for some reason it sounds like poison to me! lol!!)
Anyhoo - I've created this simple gift card hang tag using the Skull/Rose combo from Man's Ruin and two piratey skulls from A Pirate's Life.  I used the two skulls from A Pirate's Life to for my background - inked with Versamark and heat set with white embossing powder.  And I used the Skull/Rose from Man's Ruin - stamped on patterned paper, colored and blended with my Prismacolor pencils, trimmed out and popped up on foam adhesive.  I added a bit of rustic twine through a punched hole and VOILA!
Other stamps used - Lawn Fawn - Happy Halloween web.  

Thanks so much for hopping in today!  Your next stop is off to Paula's fabby site!

If only I could afford to give all the trick-or-treaters gift cards. This is such a fun project, Meredith! And it's so versatile! It can be adapted to any occasion!
