Tickled Pink Stamps Sponsors Haunted Designs

This week Tickled Pink Stamps is sponsoring the Haunted Design Challenge and the theme couldn't suit us any better - it's Pink on the Brink - that is pink with an edge and not "pretty in pink".

You know sometimes when you create something you're just not happy with - but others like it?!?!?! Well this card is one of those. I think having stepped away from it for a few days I don't hate it as much as I did - but I leave it to you to decide!

The gorgeous little skullies were made by my fellow Burtonesque Doll Glo and are available in several colours from Simply Betty Stamps HERE. The image (Lylah) is available from Tickled Pink Stamps and the sentiment is from a soon to be released TPS set. The background is a Magnolia stamp from last year's Halloween collection and the grass was cut using my Martha Stewart punch.

I've seen the inspiration from some of my other fellow TPS DT - as well as from the Haunted Design DT - so I hope you check them out and give this a go!

This is gorgeous Debbie! I love the shade of pink paired with the black and gray. The GlowSkullz look great on this project! Thanks for the plug. The juxtaposition of the moon and the branch on the card is fabulous! LOVE it!
Why does it seem like when I am having a bad hair day, I get a ton of compliments? Maybe you just think you are having a bad card day.
