This is Halloween...

"Isn't the view beautiful? It takes my breath away. Well, it would if I had any. "- The Corpse Bride

Happy Monday!  Its challenge time at Desert Island Crafters Challenge again and today I have a PEEK for you!!  This is The Corpse Bride coming soon from Simply Betty Stamps!  She will be released in just a few short weeks, but you may see peeks of her popping up all over the place!!  If you like Betty's images, be sure to follow me for me peeks of fun stuff to come!!

And check out that AWESOMEly spooky gate!  Its a new  background  stamp from Stampendous! called Beware Gate thats embossed with new Aged Black Embossing Enamel.

So, on to the challenge!!  Its Suzie McFloozy's Itinerary that we follow this week, and here it is:

1 - Dry embossing
2 - Paper piecing (not to be confused with piercing!)
3 - Pearls
4 - Office stationary (paper clips etc)
5 - Kraft card
6 - Ruffles
7 - Stickers
8 - Stitching
9 - Vintage/Old fashioned (could be an image or just style)
10 - Fabric

I used #1 Dry embossing (Tim Holtz folder distressed with purple Metallic rubons)
#3 pearls (from May Arts, tied into my other ribbons)
#6 Ruffles  & # 8 Stitching
(I stitched my ribbon to the panel overlapping pieces to form a ruffled edge)

Here's a shot of the ribbon and pearl trim and the ruffle border

More of the ruffle border, a tad of the embossed black mat, and sentiment)

And finally  closeup of The Corpse Bride herself.  I just love her!!  And just wait to you see the rest of the Burton Chibis coming in September!!   

We hope you will join us this Fortnight in our challenge!  You have until August 31st to play along!!
