Flaunt It Friday's Challenge #7

This week over at Flaunt it Fridays they are having a challenge that we have to use "SKULLS"! Just as long as it is NON-Halloween. love this challenge. This is my first time entering their challenge and this was fun for me! I pondered for so long on what to do and who to make this for that the challenge is almost over. Well late Sunday night I started by using my Pumpkin Carving Cartridge. I fell in love with the bones! I also decided to make this into a birthday card for the DH! His birthday is next week...so this is perfect for him. He even said last night that his body was aching! He is going to love it! I used some skull ribbon, sanded the edges, used
I used the Ranger Crackle Accents and Martha Stewart punch to make it look old just like him! I typed out the sentiment "NO BONES ABOUT IT...". I didn't put anything on the inside yet here are my ideas...
So on the front it would read; "NO Bones About It"... then on the inside it could be:
It's your birthday
Your Old
It's  a Celebration.
Which one do you like, if any, or if you have any other ideas I would love to hear them!
Hope you enjoy!
