Sugar Skulls

I have never made anything related to the "day of the dead".  To be perfectly honest, it kinda creeps me out. But I decided this was the year to make a digital card using sugar skulls.
The quotation translated to English says "There is more time than life."

The base is black card with orange and yellow mats.

My digital design is as follows:
Gecko Galz Day of the Dead collage sheet
Gecko Galz Coven digital paper pack.

I cropped and converted to a ping file the sugar skull which I then placed 3 times on the digital paper and added shadowing for dimension.

The couple image has around it a 3-D shadow box and a fire frame.

I then added the phrase and put some shadowing and a colored dimensional frame around it.

Submitting this card to:

Great card your paper layers and of course the Gecko Galz image. Perfect sentiment.

I've never done any Day of the Dead pieces, either, Helene--but looks like you hit the nail on the head with your first try!
