Whilst blog hopping....

I came upon a new challenge site, The Burtonesque Dolls, created by and for people who love all things Tim Burton.

This week they've set their first challenge, to use stripes! (a Burton favorite!)

For my card I thought I would give an aperture card a chance for once. The are not usually cards that i use, so of course I have loads all over the place! What better to fit into the aperture than this little gorjuss gal!! I've had her a while and bet I've only inked her up about 1/2 dozen times, if that!! The twigs in the background are from a tree stamp by Elusive Images.

The stripy paper is, I think, Cosmo Cricket. Again, I've had it for ages LOL

Anyhow, have a great Wednesday! :o)
