I love sugar skulls and was looking for a reason to create one with the Ole cartridge from Cricut. They only have the one skull on the cartridge but with tons of papers and embellishments on the market you can create a different sugar skull every time.
I decided to create a wall hanging in the color scheme red and black.

I used some rubons for the flowers inside the eyes, lots of bling, patterned paper, cardstock, and for some added texture simply white Mama's Mesh by Lovebug Creations.
I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!
Come back Monday November 4th for the new Monthly Challenge
Wednesday for the announcement of the blog hop winner!
Happy Crafting and Scrappy Hugs,
