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

I added my word and my card was complete:)

Great project! I love Lock, Shock and Barrel! Love the lace...it is a surpring element that works really well with the creepy stuff. Thanks so much for playing along with The Burtonesque Dolls!
