Wish You A Scary Christmas

Ok... this the last challenge over at The Burtonesque Dolls for 2010!!! Using any Nightmare before Christmas Images Create your best Christmas Project with that Burton Flair! This weeks winner will win... Three Exclusive Nightmare Before Christmas Images from Simply Betty Stamps. Oh man.... that's a HUGE prize! Head over to The Burtonesque Dolls and check out what the other awesome design team members created for inspiration.

As for this one.... I KNEW I wanted to use the speckled grey cardstock for this one. I love how it resembles the granite of a gravestone. That's pretty Burtonesque, don't you think? I also found an awesome Engravers Font, but for some reason couldn't get it uploaded to my font folder. Too soon before Christmas for me to want to deal with glitches, so I just settled for an easy holiday font that I already had available. But for the record... the "Happy Holidays" in a tombstone font would have "NAILED" this project!!! Huh... I might just play around with that after all...

Great card. Where did you get your burton image from?

Mary, if I'm not mistaken... which I may be because, like a dork, I failed to record where I got this image, but I believe I got this during the Little Hop Of Horrors blog hop... it was a freebie from Simply Betty Stamps. If I'm wrong... someone, PULEEZE chime in and correct me.
