Both of your cards are fantastic, I have to admit, though, that the first card with the skull and filligree totally caught my attention. That is a lot of impact with only two stamps. Really cool!

I love that you check us out over at Opus Gluei and enjoy playing with our challenge themes. We love to see what you've created and thank you for participating with us!
