Sparkle goes to the dark side

Hey there!
Who all is really glad to see Friday finally roll around again? I am ! I am!

I've got a lot planned for my day off but nothing that I'm dreading so it should be a good day. :)

So I was having fun with the Burtonesque challenge once again and this week we are to use black flowers and skulls somewhere in our card design. As it turned out I ended up only using a single large flower and a single skully brad but I think it works within the parameters. ;)
I thought it would be cool to color miss Sparkle Thistleweed in a bit more dark and twisty kind of way than I have in the past, just to see if she could pull off a look appropriate for the challenge. And I gotta say I think she looks both edgy and cute like this.

Alrighty, I'm outta here... have a lovely day my friends!
