Nightmare Before Christmas Blog Hop

Take a ride to Halloweentown as we bring it alive through many creative projects from our awesome line up of crafters/bloggers. If you didn't start with Jearise's blog I would suggest going back there so you don't miss a single amazing project. If you came from Lisa's blog then you are in the right spot!

Our sponsor for this hop is Cutting Cafe, who is giving away three files of the winner's choice. You can get qualified for the drawing, which will be held on October 15th, by leaving comments on each blog. The more blogs you comment on the more chances you have to win so please hop through all our bloggers.

Now on to Halloweentown... and a quote from Jack Skellington to get you on your way, "Just because I cannot see it, doesn't mean I can't believe it!"

For my project I harkened all the way back to the amazingly creative illustrator Edward Gorey, who influenced Tim Burton and helped to make the Nightmare Before Christmas possible! I found this blog that had the illustration from Gorey's Ghastlycrumb Tinies cover. If you have never seen it check out the morbidly hilarious alphabet here. (Warning, do not let small children go to that site with you....)

I printed the illustration directly onto white cardstock and then cut around it into the size I needed for an A2 card. I then added Halloween color ribbon, some 10mm black and brown bling, some lace and a line of clear bling as well. I am hoping that someone can help me to figure out an not too macabre sentiment for this card... Your help would be appreciated!

Thank you for stopping by today and now please continue on to Sandra's blog.
