Go Dark - with Delicious Doodles

Good morning peeps
Today is the first of September and therefore heralds in the start of a new challenge over at the Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog.  This month the challenge was chosen by Avril on behalf of myself - DARK! Be that dark colours or theme is down to interpretation. I went with both and made a little mini book.
Picture heavy so hope you'll last out until the end.
I used images from Teri's Etsy shop, of course......... The Skully Chess Set and The Tombstones.

The front of the book - hand stitched from scratch using black cardstock - features faux leather as demonstrated by Sheena Douglass.
The corners are black card, die cut and rubbed over with gilding wax.

The inside covers are papers from Teri as well

Journaling/photo mats on the reverse of the tombstones.

The other papers are all from the BoBunny Enchanted range with the exception of the checkerboard which is from DCWV Immortal love stack.

We hope you can find the time to join our challenge.
Thanks for looking
