Black May Giveaway! CLOSED

Well, May is not really black, it's lush and green with Spring. However, this little beauty I'm giving away is painted black, and I thought it seemed a fitting title. ;) Allow me to present, "Gothic Graciela"...





This sugar skull has been completely hand cut from wood and hand painted. She's my original, hand crafted design from start to finish. She's completely blinged out with crystal embellishments and a small cross. She meaures 7" tall x 5" wide x .75" thick. Her sides and back are painted black. She has a sawtooth hanger for easy placement, and is signed on the back by the artist (me). She's protected with sealant for gloss and a lasting vibrancy (although, she's designed for indoor use only). Do you have a special spot for her, she is looking for a new home!

It's simple to enter! Leave a comment on this post stating if you do any or all of the things listed below (Those that already follow my blog or Facebook page will be entered for each, but please still comment on this post):

*Start following my blog for one entry.
*Become a fan on Facebook (badge on left side of my blog) for one entry.

The winner will be chosen at random from a magical hat. ;) This giveaway will end on Monday, May 17th. Please leave a way for me to contact you, in case you are the winner! This giveaway is open to my International friends, too. Thank you in advance for entering!
