Betty goes Burtonesque

Hidee ho neighbor-ee-nos!

Once again, all I can say is thank goodness for Fridays, LOL!
I don't have any big plans other than to just enjoy my time off and see where the day takes me. :)

So before I get into my card for the day, I've still got one unclaimed Sweet November candy that is looking for a good home... Kate... I need to hear from you by Sunday otherwise I'm going to draw a new name for the Treasure Tempestwind candy and announce on Monday!

Ok, ok moving on... so this week the Burtonesque challenge is being hosted by Simply Betty Stamps and the theme is inspired by Sweeney Todd, final cut and shave (create a card/project using decorative scissors or paper distressing tools). At first I thought about going dark with lots of red/black/white but when I saw pretty little London staring up at me I decided to go a different direction and took my inspiration from the Johanna character in the movie. This allowed me to create a very girly card with just a bit of an 'edge' to it. Get it? Edge? Sweeney Todd? Bwahahahaa sometimes I just crack myself up! ;)
I even blew the dust off of an old pair of pinking shear edge scissors and put them to work on the pink text paper along with some torn edges as well... what can I say, I'm a tearer. Or is that terror? Hard to tell some days... Bwhahahaaha man I am on a roll today! :)

Sigh, alrighty that's all I got... have a lovely weekend!
