Cupcake and Crossbones!

Long time, little scrapping!  It seems summer has officially arrived here in the Midwest and along with the warmer weather has come a number of reasons to be outside - yard work, golf, grilling out....  I've been enjoying it all, but unfortunately it's kept me from scrapping much lately.  I actually made this card a couple of weeks ago, I just haven't gotten around to sharing it.  This card is for my step-niece, whose birthday is this weekend.  I was a bit hesitant about putting crossbones on a birthday card and actually had a discussion about it with my friend Missy during a long run one weekend.  I decided to go ahead and do it because it seems to fit my step-niece's personality and I figured that if anyone would appreciate crossbones on a birthday card it would be her!!
