Hello Mr. Bones

Here's my version of a punched Mr. Bones: oooh, lots of pieces to manage so don't sneeze! Very cute when completed. Inspiration for Mr. Bones can be found from Ellen on her blog: I didn't add the hat. Finished card size is 3-1/4" x 6-1/2" and will fit in the Small Open ended Envelopes.
