Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #3

Happy Challenge Tuesday all you Burtonesque Dolls followers. Today marks for a new challenge. Are ya ready? We were sponsored this week by Tickled Pink Stamps. The stamp I used was from the Lil Lolita collection --Lilith. And let me tell you, these stamps are just way to fun. I want them all...lol....so hop on over and check them out. You are going to go crazy for them. They so fit right in here with the challenges.... So onto this weeks challenge over at TBD. We were asked to make a card using skulls and black flowers and this is what I came up with.....Enjoy!!! I made this into a 6X6 easel card. I also used alot of nesties, the ribbon tag and flourish accents from Spellbinders and Martha border punches/branch leaves....the skull is from Tim Holtz grungeboard and I added a bunch of stickles and rhinestones...I also used distress inks to color the image in....this image reminds me of someone truly missing a friend....what do you think? this is just the side view....to make the card cut a 12X6 and score 3" on the 12" side and fold at 6"...then take another piece of cardstock and cut it to be 6X6 and adhere only to the 3" score line as shown in the photo above....you can click on the photos to make them larger if you would like...
I really love this border punch from Martha Stewert with the birds....
for the flower I used the dahlia flower nestie from Spellbinders and added some white ink (also on the birds) to give it a little highlight....Well that's all I have for you today...hop on over to TBD blog and take the challenge..I'd love to see what you come up with......Hugs from a soon to be drowning Charm City....

Nancy, this card has got it going on! Wowzah! I love it all! From the pink & black color scheme, to the gorgeous papers, lovely coloring, and all the amazing embellies. The pink skull is TDF cute, and I love the scrolls. Totally drooling over the bird and court jester-esque border punches - they add such great depth to this amazing creation!
And I am eagerly awaiting a tutorial on the flower - it is FAB!
