Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #4

Can you believe it's Tuesday already? And you know what that means, it's time for another TBD challenge. This week we are playing with Busy Beauties, they are our generous sponsors! Thanks, Carolyn & crew! Last week, Busy Beauties released some wicked cool images that fit perfectly with this week’s Burtonesque challenge: AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER. Create a new card, ATC, scrap page, etc. inspired by Tim Burton’s The Corpse Bride! You have until Monday at 10:00 p.m. PST to link your creepy cool creations at The Burtonesque Dolls blog. One lucky challenge player will win their choice of 5 (FIVE) images from the Busy Beauties Boutique! For more inspiration, please be sure to visit all the Dolls, especially our newest Doll, the lovely & talented Eulanda! Here is my card for the challenge.... I used the Queen from Busy Beauties Boutique. Isn't she just darling? I also used a bunch of other stamps to make the background and colored them in with Distress ink refills. I also used Tim Holtz' line of products for the plate (behind the Queen), grunge paper for flower, film strip and button. I cut 3 dahlia flowers from Spellbinders to make my flower--colored in with broken china and stamped with Tim's word stamp. Here's a closer look of the flower using the grunge paper.....I just love this button. This turned out totally different than what I had expected it to, but I kind of like it. A bit different........Well that's all I have for today...I hope everyone can join us over at TBD for this weeks challenge....Have a great week...Hugs from Charm City....

OMG you ARE the queen!! LOL! I knew it! I KNEW you were going to use feathers! I was thinking of you the other day when I was in Michael's in the flower section. It would have been nice had they had a mixed bag but alas, it was not meant to be. Wonderful scene you have going and I love the hand made flower. I must try some of those!!
