Sugar Skulls Eres Fabulosa Card

Translation:  You are FABULOUS!

(Really, you are!)

I got a new set of sugar skulls in August. I wanted them to be colorful, but I did not have time to color them with markers or pencils.

ANY STAMP COMPANIES LISTENING??  I truly love the sugar skulls and Dia de los Muertos images. Can you include sentiments that go with Dia de los Muertos???  PLEASE??
