TBD #14 Victorian Beauties

The Dolls are extra excited this week because we are working with brand new images from our very own Betty and her ultra fabulous Simply Betty Stamps! This new digi line is called Victorian Beauties and is just perfect for Burtonesque-ing! Your mission this week is to create a card/project using any female Burton character and giving her a Victorian make-over!
This is "Mina".
I probably would have picked her just cause she has a cool name, but once I saw the little skullies on her dress and hat, I knew she was the digi for me. 
I even got flowery and flourishy on this one.
Seems fitting for the Victorian Beauties.
I think they used flowers like we use deodorant these days.
Man, can you imagine the 'aroma' from wearing all of those layers and bustles, in an
unairconditioned world?
Um, eeew.

Join the Dolls this week for our challenge.
Simply Betty is giving away a sweet prize! 
The Victorian Beauties images will be released and available for purchase at Simply Betty Stamps later this week, and the Dolls have been invited to participate in the Release Hop on August 6th! Woot woot! So be sure to join us at the SBS Blog on Friday for more fun and chances to win the new digis!
