...y su amor más permanente



This card rounds out my trio of Dia De Los Muertos cards and features Sugar Skull Trish from Simply B Stamps.


To make up my card I followed the Week 4 sketch over at Viva La Verve, I just swapped out shapes for the elements in the sketch mostly for a bit of added interest.  For my colour inspiration I used the photo at Inkspirational, I kept coming back to it I think because of the owls and the bright colours.  Owls because Trish (who this digi was drawn for) loves owls and the bright colours because of Dia De Los Muertos.  I also picked up the crochet in my flower embellie and mirrored the swirly circles in my background paper.

I’ve really enjoyed making my Dia De Los Muertos cards, it is a lovely tradition and sure beats the morbid view of death we often have.
