Mourning Glory - Smudgy Antics Challenge

Hello, all! I hope everyone had a lovely holiday with their family and friends. It's time for another Smudgy Antics Challenge. This week's challenge is "Mourning Glory."

Here is the challenge write up over at Smudgy Antics:

I hope everyone that celebrates it had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! We have another challenge for you this week and we can't wait to see what you come up with!

Here's a reminder about the rules:

*Each Monday morning a new challenge will be posted. It will contain that week's theme and prize information.

*To participate, you must make a project that fits the theme and add it to the post using the Inlinkz linky. Your link must take us directly to your project on a publicly accessible blog or website, or it will be disqualified - so please make sure you're linking to your actual post. It must be linked by midnight on the following Saturday, Pacific Time. This gives you six days to complete the challenge.

*Your project can be anything (card, scrapbook page, mixed media, altered or 3-D item, etc) as long as it is handmade and stamped somewhere with either a rubber or digital stamp. We have taken into consideration our digital artist fans and will be allowing all-digi projects. Feel free to think outside the box and have fun with your project! We are all about looking at things differently and look forward to the variety of projects and mediums we are sure to see.

*You may use any stamped image, however only projects using at least one Smeared Ink image will be eligible to win a prize. Encourage your crafty friends to come play with us!

*You can only enter and qualify for a prize if you are, or become, a follower of the blog. While you're at it, why not visit the forum as well for more challenges?

*The weekly winner will be chosen by random number and revealed on Sunday. Prizes will vary and may range from a free digi to a coupon to a blog badge.

So let's get to it! Here's this week's info.

The Challenge: Mourning Glory

(make a project using graves, churchyards, etc.)

Here is my DT example for this challenge:

Mourn 8 X 8 Layout. As some of you know already, I like visiting old cemeteries and taking photos of tombstones. This is another photo of mine for my cemetery album. I used papers from the DCWV Ghosts & Goblins paper pack. The skeletons stamp is from Smeared Ink. The flowers are from Prima. I added some Liquid Pearls in Cantaloupe on the alphas, which are Thickers and as dots on the flourishes.

I hope you all will join in on the challenge!
