I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Punk You Girl: Anything Goes (dark/edgy/creepy)

I used Bombshell stamps from the Tattoo Background and Alter Sugar Skull sets.  I stamped and embossed the images to give them texture - I also used a spider web embossing folder on the orange background paper for more texture (all papers & word stickers from Authentique), then sponged some black ink over it.  The spider was embossed in a glossy black, the sugar skull alter set was embossed with Tim Holtz Distress Powder in Walnut Stain, then colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits, Prismacolor markers, and Stickles.  Lots of Stickles.  I added a ribbon and some pearl stickers to finish it off.  The funny thing about this card is that it is completely different from what I set out to create - but I absolutely love the way it turned out.  Funny how art can be like that - sometimes I create exactly what I envisioned and yet I'm not happy with it, and then there's times like this... I love art. :)
Next up on the hop is Sharon - have fun hopping!
Next up - we have a new challenge for you today at:
