:) I really like the dark challenges with the bit creepy and interesting touch of dark dreams :) as well as the skulls-tamps :). The blog hop is a wonderful idea and the prize amazing :) - so I try my luck!

Your banner is very unique and faszinating with the illuminated letters and individal stamps. Also the great background is fine accent of darkeness :).
