My Nightmare Before Christmas Musical Interlude Card

Over at the Burtonesque Dolls Blog this weeks challenge was to make a card using one of three of chosen songs from the movie Nightmare  before christmas. As I am a big fan of this film and so is my eldest daughter Honor I could not resist making a card for this challenge. I picked the song "Kidnap The Sandy Claws".
 Here is my Finished card:)
                         If you enjoy My card don't forget to vote for it :)

I started with a black 6x6 base card
I then found the music sheet for Kidnap Sandy Claws and printed it out on parchment 
I then ripped it and inked the edges making it my background for the card
I cut the title with fiskers Majestic paper edgers then inked the edges
I found a genic coloring image on the net for my trio
I colored them with Prisma colored pencils and
 trimmed the edge with the Fiskars Majestic paper edgers 
Then I inked the edges
I surrounded the image with lace from AC Moore
I laid down a layer of red ribbon at the bottom of the card
Then I added the Crochet flower which was made by Shannin
(over at shanninscreativecorner.blogspot.com)

I added my word and my card was complete:)

Steam Punk ATC

So I think I have had the hardest challenge yet to date. I signed up for a Steam punk swap in one of my CM Groups really not knowing what steam punk was. After looking it up and getting a little bit of a concept I thought to myself this would be a good challenge. I had never done anything like this before it is different and some artist had created some really cool ATC's using this method. OH BOY!! What was I thinking:) It truly turned out to be one of my biggest challenges to date. I sat in front of my design for weeks moving things changing things just not happy with anything. I finally came up with a designed I was satisfied with not I said satisfied not thrilled to death head over heal in love. Just satisfied. I think I have been defeated by the concept of steam punk. Is that possible LOL:) Well we all must have our kryptonite and I believe Steam punk is mine LOL!! So without further hesitation here is my Card:)

Even in the colors I need what luck:) That saved me time so props to you !! All I had to do was make my letters and Happy Birthday and not a purse now:) It was definitely a long day:) Well here is my Finished cake:) Have a great night everyone!!And create great ART!!
