From a T-shirt to a card

Hi
Some things are just too good to throw away.  My husband had a T shirt with this on it and when the shirt wore out this skull was still good.  It laid on the desk for a year and then became this.
The background folder is one I used a couple of blogs ago.  The raised oval is a Nellie Snellen die (and one I lost part of and never found :(
I stuffed the skull with a bit of cotton to make it stand out and then put pop dots under as well to really make it stand out.
This is the inside.  It is an Apache Wedding blessing. 
No matter where I tried to photograph the card the colors did not come out.  The skull has green in it but can only be seen if you click on the card.
Have a Blessed day.
Myrna

Well, good thing you saved it!
Anything scrappy you throw away after getting tired of it, or moving it from place to place you find a use for!
Great sentiment too!

This is a great card Myrna! I love the idea of recycling the skull, and the wedding blessing is perfect with it! I love the embossing and brass finding too!
