LLB Skulls Challenge

G'day guys. Have you all checked out the new Lil Haunts over at Tickled Pink Stamps. How great are they?!?!?!  This week the challenge over at LLB is to use Skulls in your creations. This fits perfectly for all of you who are making Halloween cards, however I have chosen to do a birthday card and use one of the older members of the Lil Lolita family, 50's Lilith. With the skull on her dress I thought she suited the theme perfectly.

I have used some seriously hot pink DP, sorry not sure what it is, and added some Hot pink Cardstock. The black skulls are a wheel stamp from SU which I have embossed with black embossing powder and added some black glitter. The sentiment and the white skull are from the Heather Rolin "Let it Rock" digital stamp set available from Tickled Pink Stamps, along with the black mesh ribbon.  All in all I loved this card but am disappointed with the colouring job I did on Lilith. I coloured her in three times and ended up using the first one I coloured because it was the best of a bad bunch. I didn't have a copic marker that was a hot enough pink and used a Tombow marker and it just didn't blend. Anyway I hope I provided some inspiration and please join us this week at LLB for the skull challenge.
