Day of the Dead Birthday Twist

Well I actually had this card made for a while, but I was waiting to post it.  I made it for my Mum's birthday - she shares my love of skulls, so Aurora Wings' 'Day of the Dead Sprite' was just perfect.  
If you follow me you will know how much I love twisted easels. There's just something about them - impressive to look at, but so easy to make.
