Halloween Skull Card

I really like the JT cartridge for the Imagine and thought that the skull would make a cool Halloween card.  I used the square shape from George and filled it with the skull pattern paper then used some ribbon with holes in it for a template to sponge some ink dots on two of the corners. For added texture, I used my Janome Sew Mini to sew a zig zag stitch along the edges.  A couple strands of ribbon and string pearls are hot glued behind the skull and a trio of rhinestones on the lower right corner make this simple card complete.

The inside part of a card always stumps me.  I never seem to have the perfect sentiment stamp so usually end up writing my own.  Sometimes it takes longer to do the inside than the front!  Here is the verse used for this card:

In the dark of night,
With the moon glowing bright,
A skeleton tapped on my screen.
Though obviously dead,
Very lively he said:
Have a Happy Halloween!

Wishing everyone a safe and happy Halloween!
