hi,,,i think the green is definatly good , as it shows the guest of the colour theme :),,, i LOOOOOVE the little skull , we are also haveing a little skull touch to our wedding ( cake topper and invites, i was told that stamped return envelopes must be included. if i could suggest… the ribbon ,, don’t cut ( like the top half) a piece into your card to let the ribbon go though ,,, i would let it wrap like the other  and make sure to glue it under the pices in the middle so people don’T see the glueing mark. i would also suggest going to your local craft  store (we call it a papetrie in french )they have lots of creative paper for like 40cents a piece ) that way the paper is thiker and less floppy 🙂 hope this helps ,, i know you helped me out 🙂 enjoy

For the skulls on the front, I would look for a heavy weight card stock to print them on & maybe even emboss them so they are raised and POP more. I would also lay that over the top of the black card rather than cutting a window, that way you could add a decoration to the corners if you so choose. Also that way the ribbon could go right under the card and wouldn’t have to be cut.
And can you look for  a rose stamp to do the border with? I know they are very common in the dia de los Muertos.

 

Good luck!!!

I agree with Ms. VW.   I would say, maybe find a big rose stamp and just have a few instead of a border.  You could even just put one in a corner and use a green embossing powder.  I just think a border is not necessary if you make the picture in the middle pop a little more.
