Grave Tombstone Halloween Tag

Created this Halloween Tag with a Pirate & Grave Tombstone theme. 

Used Cricut cartridge Tags, Bags, Boxes & More to make the Tag base. Used Canvas Corp Black & Kraft Ravens for the base which I found at a Ben Franklin store while I was on vacation some time ago. Bought only one sheet and wish I had bought more.

Used Cricut cartridge Happy Hauntings for the Grave scene. 
Stamped K Andrew Designs sentiment on vellum. Inked the vellum with Tim Holtz Distress Ink black soot. Stamped KAD Pirate Skeleton, punched it out with a Stampin' Up oval punch & inked it up with TH Distress Ink black soot. 

Used American Crafts Glitter pen on the Raven that is sitting on the tombstone. Added glitter on a roll skeleton & metallic ribbon.
