Skull Appreciation Day

Hi everyone, hope your are having a good day today!  Today it is sunny and warm - sooo lovely and unusual so far this month!!
Some time ago, while browsing on the Internet I came across some pictures of playing cards with a slightly macabre feel - I thought I would use one of these for my card to enter into the Smudgy Antics Challenge - Anything Goes/Skull Appreciation Day.
I painted a piece of card with black acrylic paint and stamped some flourishes on it and embossed with clear powder.  The rose and the punched design round the edge is covered with red tinsel embossing powder.  The flourish is covered with a mixture of verdigris and black powders (I thought the verdigris is a bit too bright and like to soften it with other colours)

I would also like to enter this into the
Simon Says Stamp and Show texture challenge
Smudger Challenge blog - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking
