Phantom Halloween 3D Card

Wow, Halloween just around the corner. Time just flies by.
I was working on explosion box using Phantom by PinkPaslee kit and when I was almost done with it my mojo was interrupted  by so many things that can take place in life..
So when I cleared my deck and put in front of me unfinished project I was still searching for something.. Do you ever have that filling that something is just not right and all ideas that flies in your head are just wrong??? That was one of those...
I had just few papers left, so I couldn't do anything grandiose. I was thinking a card earlier and supplies confirmed it... But what kind of card? I want something special and interesting, unique if you will.
On top of that the person who the explosion box was going to have a BD right the day before Halloween, so I wanted that card be some what Birthday card or at list girly..
Have no idea how I stumbled on that idea, but suddenly I wanted to do a SCULL card....
Alright Google Search be ready here I come! What did people do earlier with out Google? have no idea..
I found very cute girly image of scull

isn't she the cutest???
I ran it through my Adobe and printed myself a template. Grabbed some black card stock, folded it in half, layered the template on top and cut out the shape leaving one piece on the folded side uncut.
 And creation began...
I pulled some papers and scraps that I had, traced elements of scull and fussy cut those, creating paper pieces card... If that only would be it... People who knows me would say - No don't buying into it! Natasha can't do just simple things... True, true..
Ok,  take a look what I came up with

Isn't she GORGEOUS? OMG, this card is so stinking cute!
I used layer of clear transparent frame out of kit to put it over the card and create dimensional or at list vision of dimensional project. For some reason when you need some ideas on how to .. and stuff - you seems just can't find anything, so I was forced to use my imagination and creativity.
This transparent frame looks like this

So I cut the top part and alcohol ink the clear edge. Then I adhered using Vellum Spray Adhesive face part of scull (funny wordage face of scull) on top of the transparency sheet and attached it at the right top corner of the card.
But before that I placed cut outs of bones and a bow on the top layer of the card and if you will lift up transparency sheet you will understand how I did it.
As I said I secured see through sheet in the right top corner of the card by placing cluster of flowers
 I used some fabulous paper flowers in red, small green and yellow flowers, ceramic calla lilies were gifted to me by Irina, little purple bling and some black in gold pearl string that I had in my stash for a long time.
For the background of this cluster I created Tim Holtz rosette  and used smaller one to balance out the card
 as well I added cut outs of scull eyes and nose and placed those on the back of the card as you see here.
Card opens up on the corner of the bow. So I added some plainer paper to inside in case if the recipient would like to wright something down (I do not like to wright in my cards for some reason)

Just added 3D stickers and a bling for sparkle...

In all I am very pleased how this card came out. So Halloweeny and Happy Birthday LIKE!
