Halloween Skull Card

The Spongebob Cricut cart has some great gems on it! One of them that I found was this skull. It is a great cut for Halloween. I have also found that I really like Core'dinations paper line.
For this card I used a K & Co. Halloween paper pad for the patterned paper. I backed that with a purple-ish frame. I cut a few sizes of circles (sorry, I cant' remember what sizes ): ). The skull is from the Spongebob Squarepants cart. It is one of the feature keys and doesn't have a shadow feature, so I used Design Studio and made my own shadow. It is not a perfect shadow, but it worked for what I needed. I used Core'dinations Black Magic paper behind the skull and embossed it with the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes embossing folder and then sanded it so the purple under the black could be seen.
The smaller circle is cut on the Cricut and then embossed with Cuttlebug from the set called "Stitched Circles" and sanded. The "Happy Halloween" is cut with SCAL.
The crows on both the front and back are from the MM Slice card Spellbound. On the front I cut the crow 3 times and layered one on top of the other to make it look thicker. The ribbon is from Target.
On the inside I just used a matching purple cardstock and used the Martha Stewart Spiderweb corner punch to give it a little pizazz.
On the back I used the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch and then layered with a matching piece of patterned paper. I added a matching circle and crow to finish it off. TFL!
