Day of the Dead Celebration With Lost Coast Design

Hello Everyone!
I am now moved into my new house and am still super busy unpacking, cleaning, trying to figure out where to put stuff, etc.....
I do have all my stamping supplies out of storage and I am working on setting up a work area.  I have lots of room in the basement, but the lighting is not that great.  I am also working on sewing some valances for the kitchen.  Yup, I like to sew too.

Today, I have a card I made before the big move.  This card is for the Day of The Dead Celebration on the Lost Coast Design Portal to Creativity Blog.
