Delicious Doodles Challenge - 16 August 2013 - Christmas in August - Team A/Team B

Friday is here again and it is time for another challenge over at the Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog.  Some of the Design Team are taking a break during the summer so Team A Team B are merging throughout the summer.  This week the challenge is "Christmas in August".
Teri over at Delicious Doodles will be very surprised when she sees my card for this week as she knows I don't normally "do" the darker images/scarier images.  For my card I have used the Delicious Doodles Pile o' Bones Backing Paper and Skully Xmas Wreath.  I used My Craft Studio to insert the image on top of the backing paper and added some ribbon embellishments.  The wreath I have coloured in with my Promarkers using surprisingly four greys for the skulls and three browns for the bones.  The backing paper is sat on a piece of card I stamped with Tim Holtz's Black Soot and Fired Brick distress ink pad using one of my Sheena Douglass stamps from the A Little Bit Sketchy Range called "Aged Beautifully".  I have typed the sentiment on the computer and cut out with dies.  I have finished the card off with some black gems, spotty ribbon.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
