Oct. 22-23 All Things Tim Burton Blog Hop

(click on image to enlarge)

Boys and girls of every age, wouldn't you like to see something strange?  If you're a Tim Burton fan, you will recognize that line from "This is Halloween" -- a well-known song from the movie  "The Nightmare Before Christmas".  With Halloween just around the corner, this is the perfect time to celebrate all things Tim Burton!  We have a talented group of ladies on this weekend blog hop.  Join us as we each share a project inspired by one of Tim's quirky characters!  

We would like to thank Karber Digital Images for sponsoring this blog hop.  Karber is giving away two digital stamps to one lucky person who comments during the blog hop.  

*** To be eligible to win, you must comment on each blog in the hop.  
*** You must become a follower of each blog.

*** The winner will be announced no later than Wednesday, October 26th.  

Now, on to the project I would like to share with you:

My fifteen year old has been a huge fan of Jack Skellington for many years, so I made this card for her.  I used a Jack Skellington digital stamp from Simply Betty Stamps.  It's one of their Burton Chibis digis.  I absolutely LOVE this digi and plan on getting more from the Burton collection.  If you haven't already, you really must check out their stamps!

I colored the digi with Copics and then adhered to some gorgeous purple Halloween paper that has lots of glitter on it!  I used pop dots with both Jack and the pumpkin to add a bit of dimension to the card.  The pumpkin is also nice and glittery.  I love it because it looks like an evil pumpkin fit for the Pumpkin King! It actually came from some paper that I had in my stash.  The sentiment was computer generated using a font most will recognize as one used for the title of the movie "The Nightmare Before Christmas".  I love the Jack digi, glitter, and colors on this card.  When I showed it to my daughter, she gasped and said, "That's so CUTE!"  All that matters is that she loved it.  =)
