Bad to the Bone

Hello!  Are you all having a great week so far?  How many of you have the rest of the week of for Thanksgiving??  Not me - I only get Thanksgiving Day off.  No complaints though - I'll take it!!  :-)

The card I'm sharing this evening is one I made for a good friend of mine at work.  He is very in to skulls - his cube looks like it is decorated for Halloween all year round!  He also likes to listen to music while he is working, so most of the time he has headphones on.  I try to makes my cards fit their recipient whenever possible and his birthday cards are always a challenge for me.  I managed to find this image on the Rock Princess cartridge though, and with a slight modification, I think it worked.  The image has flourishes coming out on the sides.  I cut those off from the image and from the shadow layer in an attempt to make the image a little more masculine.  He loved the card, so I guess it worked!

Thanks for coming by to take a look!
