I love Halloween, absolutely love it!  The scary decorations are among my favorite...which is where the inspiration for this card came from! 
While I shopping earlier in the month I saw a scary ceramic rustic skull and knew I had to give it a try in Inkscape and this is what I came up with and I LOVE IT!

Pattern Paper: Lost & Found (My Mind's Eye)
Ribbon: Lost & Found (My Mind's Eye)
Font: Edwardian Script ITC
Ink: Charcoal and Chestnut Roan (Cat’s Eye Chalk Ink)
Adhesive:  1/2" Craft Glue Dots®
Jewels – Black (Zva Creative)

So where is the svg file you ask?!
You can get the Skull and Tombston SVG/Studio file HERE
Card Instructions:
• Using black cardstock trim to 5 ½” x 8” and fold in half to form a 5 ½” x 4” Card.
• Trim mat from pattern paper to 5 ¼” x 3 ¾”. Distress the edges and add charcoal ink. Adhere to the card base using ½” Craft Glue Dots, centering.
• Trim two tombstone shapes, making one slightly larger than the other and add charcoal ink around the edges. Using the ½” Craft Glue Dots adhere both pieces to the card mat, centering toward the top of the card.
• Add black glitter to the skull die cut behind the eyes and nose and attach skull to the tombstone, again centering toward the top as shown in the photo.
• Trim a 3” x 1” strip of pattern paper and add sentiment. Distress edges and ink with chestnut roan ink. Attach to the bottom of the card using the ½” Craft Glue Dots.
• Tie the Baker’s twine around the tombstone and decorate with jewels.
