Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #15 - Favourite Burton Film

This week my card for The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge is a little less dark than my previous ones. It's your turn to make this challenge whatever you want, take a scene from your favorite Burton film and recreate it on your project. We are also being sponsored this week by Tickled Pink Stamps and the gorgeous Kellie is offering the winner 2 rubber stamps - 80s Sookie and 50s Lilith. The DT have had soo much fun working with these gals this week - be sure to stop by the blog and see what other Burton movies the Lolita's have become a part of.

I've used Sookie to help me recreate the famously beautiful scene from Edward Scissorhands where Edward makes an ice-sculpture as Kim dances in the snow. This was one of the first Tim Burton movies I ever saw and it's story has soo many facets to explore. I used parts of the last lines from the movie for my sentiment - the actual lines are - "Before he came down here, it never snowed. And afterwards, it did. If he weren't up there now, I don't think it would be snowing. Sometimes you can still catch me dancing in it." It just seemed perfect for this card.

Hope you decide to come along and play too!

Goodness this has to be my favorite Tim Burton film ever. I just adore it. And this scene... that quote... they just make my heart hurt. So amazing... so sad. AGH!! Now I need to go rent that and have a huge cry, lol. There's just something about that movie.

I love your card. You did an amazing job. And Sookie works just perfectly. I love the embossing and that subtle blue... gorgeous. :D HUGS!
