Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #7

Welcome to a new week and a new challenge over at The Burtonesque Doll's Blog. Our challenge for this week is---A creepy Birthday to you! Make a birthday card and creep it out Burton Style!Our sponsor this week is Tickled pink Stamps. Pop over and check out the awesome stamps that she has in the store. The one pictured below is Lylah. Isn't she just too cute...I thought this would be a great image to make a birthday card ....instead of a card I made a box to put goodies inside. Then on the inside lid I thought I would add a greeting there when I decided who was going to get this box so I left it blank for now....Well I hope you will join us this week for the challenge at TBD blog. Thanks for stopping by today....Hugs from Charm City.... I colored the image in with Prisma pencils and the background,stars, keys and the skull with distess re-inkers...I didn't want to add glam because I was thinking this could be a guy card/box... I also used wet glue as it makes your cardstock/paper so much harder when it dry's...a nifty little tidbit instead of using chipboard to make the box...I used one of Tim Holtz' hitch to go through the eye of the skull...wanted to give the illusion of a sword...
here on the side I used Tim Holtz' grunge board keys for my closures...and the buttons are strung together to keep the sides together...I opted for this instead of a regular box ...just wanted to make something different.....

Oh how cool is this, Nancy!? You always have the BEST embellies (the "sword" through the skull's eye is inspired) and the box construction takes it over the top! Love it! xxD
