I chose a skull from the Silhouette store and cut it out with my silhouette cameo.  I haven't made one before but was excited to try! I used some textured cardstock, inks, my I-Rock and jewels.  I have quite a few flowers and thought adding one looked pretty good.  I haven't decided if I am going to use it for a card or in my smash book.  Thanks for stopping by our hop!  ~~Christina
