Dancing Bones

(Second post for today.  Please scroll down for my Kraft Journal project for this week. )
     Okay, I know I've already told you guys that I don't do Halloween, and I don't, but I wanted to play with this dancing skeleton image soooo bad.  Both it and the pumpkins are from Elizabeth Dulemba.  I just thought he was so funny pulling a Fred Astaire with his little bowler hat.  It's a very simple card that I managed to squeeze all the traditional halloween colors into and was basically just a chance for me to have some coloring fun.  :-)  I actually used some 3-D paint on the skeleton.  You can kind of see it if you blow up the pic.  Hope you like my attempt at a little silliness.  Shuffle, ball change!
