Alas, poor Yorick!

It's Monday, and that means it's time for the start of another week of macabre crafting mayhem for one and all over at the Haunted Design House blog. Can you guess what the theme is? Lol, I think it's pretty obvious that this week we want you to use skulls in your project. Skulls, skulls, and more skulls! Images, papers, embellishments, fragments! Use 'em if you've got 'em! I'm not sure how many skulls are in my creation, but it's quite a few, and there's even some you can't see, because the bottom frame has smaller skulls interspersed throughout the lace and some of them have been covered up by the top frame. The main skull image is from the Gothic Heart stamp by Delicious Doodles, I just masked off the heart outline and then mirrored the image for the other side.
We have the luscious Creepy Glowbugg sponsoring us this week, and she's offering the winner a $20 voucher to her fantabulous Etsy shoppe. But wait! There's more! (Can you hear the voiceover man? But since this is Macabre Monday, picture him with bugs crawling out of his eyes and blood splatter all over his face) You also get a chance to win just by visiting Glo's shop and then leaving a comment on the challenge blog. Scurry on over to feast your eyes on the goodies available :D
These are the challenges I'd like to enter: (There are a few monochrome challenges this week. Some of them specify that you can use a minimal amount of contrast colour, and some don't. If the red means this doesn't count as monochrome for your challenge then no worries, just discount the entry)
