TBD #12 Christmas in July Challenge with Michelle Perkett

Christmas in July seems to be a very popular theme this year. But you know us - we have to put the Burtonesque spin on it. So our challenge is The Nightmare Before Christmas in July! We're dying to see how you fuse Halloween and Christmas on this one! And this week we are sponsored by Michelle Perkett Studios.
This gorgeous image is called, "Snow Goddess", and it is just one of the four
digital images Michelle is offering as a prize this week. 
I chose to keep this one rather gothic with the whole red and black color scheme.
Rather Burtonesque don't you think?

The next image is called, "Sweetie".
I decided to make this obviously Christmas image very Halloween.
I went with my favorite Hallowen colors, and my favorite ribbon.
"Sweetie" had this fabulous fur trim all around her outfit, and 
it was just screaming for some black flock!
I also had to use some Stickles for a little sparkle.
Oh, and now for some shameless self promotion.
Just look at how darn cute this bow is with this awesome little
handmade  skull embellishment!
These Glow Skullz are only available at Simply Betty Stamps.
Snatch some up now!!

Don't for get to play along with The Burtonesque Dolls this week to
win the four digital images the DT got to play with from the uber talented
