Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #3 - Cranium and a Posy

The Burtonesque Dolls have challenged me
to make an item using a black flower and a skull.
I was going to pass on this challenge since fleurs are not really
my normal mode of embellishment, but I happened upon this bag of
silk flowers I had stashed from last Halloween's order from Oriental Trading Company.
I was not impressed with these flowers at first, but once I deconstructed one, and added 
a cool skully brad, Viola!
I am really on a roll with these Sweet Peas!
I'm working on the "Cheshire Cat Illusion" image, and can't wait to
finish it up!     


  1. What a pretty card. Love the colors you went with.

  2. Gorgeousness!! Seriously sick coloring, and LOVE the trims!

  3. GORGEOUS! I've got this one too but haven't inked her yet. Wow is your coloring ever FABULOUS! Funny, I'm working on Cheshire Cat Illusion even as we speak. (Great minds think alike?)
