Día de Los Muertos

I couldn't resist this too cute freebie from Stamps by Aurora Wings.  I love Halloween and I love making wedding cards, so Day of The Dead style sprites are just perfect for me.  I used to dream about having the full-on white wedding, but as I got older I changed my mind to a themed wedding. I actually had a Chinese-inspired theme, but I think a Day of The Dead theme would be amazing. 
The Facebook group has a colouring challenge for this image, but I couldn't stop there... I had to make a card too!
This is my very first bridge card.  I don't know why I haven't made one before as they're so easy.

Products used:
  • Cardstock
  • Tulle
  • Core'dinations Glittersilk card
  • Outline stickers
  • X-Cut Scalloped Heart die
  • Tim Holtz Doily stencil
  • Distress Inks - Stormy Sky & Dusty Concord
  • Distress Oxides - Wilted Violet & Fired Brick
  • Recollections glitter skull sticker
  • Petal Lu flowers
  • ProMarkers - Black, Cool Grey 5, Burgundy, Cardinal, Red, Holly, Forest, Moss, Cinnamon, Tan, Dusky Pink, Cool Grey 1 & 2, Champagne, China Blue, Prussian & Violet
