A Spoon Full Of Sugar Challenge - Birthday's / Papertake Weekly - Dawny P's Sketch

Well TGIF to everyone today. I finally have time to put together some cards with some of my new images. This one is Charlotte! Isn't she just darling. I am such a huge Tim Burton fan, when I saw this image and how she had dolls with buttons for eyes, I just about died. I had to have this image as she's my little Coraline. Coraline is a recent Tim Burton movie with a little girl who finds a make believe family that pays attention to her more than her very busy parents. Only problem is, to stay, she has to let the mom sew buttons on her eyes. (Purely a Tim Burton cartoon). These dolls are my little Coraline's. I colored them with copics and used my Crate Paper Paper Doll Collection to put it all together. The sentiment is for my little one who I always call Dollface. I'm going to put this card away until her birthday in August and have one done for her already. I just typed the sentiment out on the computer and printed it on card stock.
I'm entering it into 2 challenges. First over at A Spoon Full Of Sugar they are looking for Birthday cards, and Papertake Weekly has this fabulous sketch by Dawny P.

Well today seems to be a nice one outside so I'm off to get some more images colored up and some more posts done. Then on to my graduation gift books that I'm doing for my 3 kids that are graduation this year, two from high school, and one from public school. Hope you have a great day.
Hugs xx

Hi Carolyn,
Won't call you Coraline!!
I know what you mean about her looking like something our of a Burton film, he's a genius isn't he.
I think he did Beetlejuice with one of my favorite Actors "Michael Keating".
Your card is stunning, your colouring and shading is fabulous, wish I could do it half as well as that.
