Macabre Monday, and a cute baby zombie

Yay, it's time for another Macabre Monday challenge over at the Haunted Design House blog and this week we want you to use 6 of something 3 times, so, for example, you could have 6 brads, 6 circles and 6 letters. Or 6 punched shapes, 6 gems and 6 layers. Get the idea? We've called this one "Mark of the Beast", mwahahahahaha!
I'm sponsoring this one, and the winner will receive 6 items of choice from my shop, Crafty Chaos Designs, and I've just decided that everyone who enters can get a free item of choice as well, I'll go alter the main blog post in just a moment. :D
Now, the first card I made for this challenge ended up waaaaaaaaay too cute for a challenge titled "Mark of the Beast" so I did another one, but I'm going to post both here.

This is the first one, see what I mean? Way too cute, right? Don't tell the other Minions but I kind of love it, lol, and I've been singing the song since I started :P The image is Skelekinz Baby by Bugaboo Stamps, and the papers are from the Dirty Jeans & Lipstick set at Crafty Chaos Designs. I used 6 dark blue matting layers, 6 brads, and 6 pieces of ribbon to make the flower.
Here are the challneges I'd like to enter with this one:
Graphicat Designs - May sketch
Paper Sundaes - magical and mythical
Pile It On - funny
Sentimental Sundays - anything goes
The Burtonesque Dolls - what would a Burton zombie look like
Ruby's Rainbow - baby and blue
Really Reasonable Ribbon - use at least two different ribbons or trims. I used ribbon and ricrac for the flower.
Stampavie and More - baby
4 Crafty Chicks - 1 button, 2 ribbons and 3 patterned papers
Digis with Attitude! - make us laugh
Craft Your Days Away - music and dance. Hmmm, does being inspired by a song count?
Catch the Bug - anything goes

And here's my second card, much more suitable for a Macabre Monday challenge. I used 6 skulls in the frame, 6 candles, 6 oval embellishments and then I snuck in 6 words as well. The papers, including the main image, are from the Kiss of a Witch set at Crafty Chaos Designs.
Here are the challenges I'd like to enter with this one:
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - sketch
Clear It Out Tuesday - ribbon or trim
I Did It Creations - monochrome
Creative Cowgirls - anything goes
Sentimental Sundays - anything goes
Digital Tuesday - use ribbon and lace (I laid the ribbon over the top of the lace)
Papertake Weekly - anything goes with an optional extra of using circles, hence my frame shape

Both cards are great Susan, but I agree the baby is too cute to be tied in with the BEAST! on the other hand your second card fits the bill perfectly! Plus I am a sucker for purple!
