The Burtonesque Dolls

Thanks to Jane I've found an interesting new challenge blog The Burtonesque Dolls [where freaky meets fun,cute and funky!].
Their 3rd challenge is to use skulls and black flowers on your project.
I thought the Stamping Bella 'Ketto' was probably the most Burtonesque stamp I had. 
Ketto [and the background floral paper] have been coloured with copics.......she's been torn and distressed..........I found a skull on the net which has been resized in Word........the flowers were punched out and a red gem added to each......all the papers are Dovecraft.
Not sure who will receive this card......but may suit one of the DDs friends!!
Used the sketch on Cute Card Thursday........Cupcake Crafts want 'black and grey plus one colour'......Crafty Angels want 'ripping and tearing'.....Papertake Weekly want 'say it with flowers' and Fab'n'Funky want 'make your own embellishments'
And now off outside to enjoy the scorching weather we're having....which apparently isn't going to last much longer..........which goes without saying really as it's the school hols next week.
Oh.....nearly forgot......I won Mel's giveaway on the blog hop................ yaaaaaaaaay....... thanks,Mel.

This is so up my alley! I know the stampotique stamps would work perfectly. Will have to go check out that challenge blog.
And I love, love, love your rendition.
