Day of the Dead Sugar Skulls Card

Card may be late since Day of the Dead is celebrated on Nov. 1 but I just got around to using the new Simon Says Stamp Sugar Skulls stamp/die.

Knew I did not have a stamp sentiment to coordinate with this but knew that there were phrases on the Autumn Celebrations Cricut cartridge like 'Day of the Dead' that I used on this card. 

Supplies List 

adhesive: foam, Scotch ATG
Cricut cartridge: Autumn Celebrations  2" Day of the Dead phrase
Glossy accents: added to Sugar Skulls teeth
paper:  the Paper Studio Basic Damask Blue Tonal scrapbook
   cardstock black, blue, white
Simon Says Stamp: stamp/die - Sugar Skulls - sentiment
