Day Of The Dead Sugar Skull Card
From the blogger: "I want to share an easy way to create a sugar skull card. This card is super simple to make with few supplies & minimal time. I repurposed a cardstock skull from hanging decorations that I bought during a Halloween clearance sale. Then simply adhere different color round gems to accentuate the design on the skull. TIP: Place the gems without glue to practice the placement so that you are satisfied with the balance of colors. To avoid frustration, take a photo of the project before you move anything and then use a clear drying adhesive to finalize the design. "
