Happy Bday Jen!

My friend Jennifer just turned 40 a while back.  A few of us went out to celebrate.  I thought it would be fun to make a crown for her to wear at her birthday dinner.  Here's what I came up with:

My friend, Carrie-the-Cricut-Guru, lent me some Cricut cartridges to make the crown, the fence and the skull.  Jen loves macabre things, so I wanted to incorporate some creepy stuff.  I think it would have been better if I mounted the skull at an angle.

It was fun to play with, though!

Cricut Cartridges:
    CTMH Art Philosophy (numbers)
    Rock Princess (crown, skull)
    Merry Monsters (fence)
Creme Brulee and Black Card Stock for the crown
Skull:  Grey Wool, Black, Cotton Candy, Colonial White
Clear Sparkles
