Tombstone Card

This spooky card was created for the newest Creative Cutting Challenge--Anything Goes.   If you create with an electronic cutter and SVG (or similar software) files, I hope you'll join in and check out all the great Design Team inspiration! 
I took the tombstone file from Halloween Set Three and turned it into a card.
I cut the base from black cardstock, the top and bottom strips from a granite looking cardstock and the front from gray cardstock.  I hand cut a piece of white to go behind the skull area.  I used Distress Ink and Distress Marker (Black Soot) to shade all the pieces.  I highlighted with the Picket Fence Distress Marker.  I then went over all the areas with a fine black Sharpie, adding the details, cracks and the little mouse.
For the inside, I cut the skeleton from the same set and put him on a wobble.
I stamped the sentiments using white pigment ink and then went over with a white gel pen.
