Double-duty challenge card...

... ala Stampotique :)  Creepy Glowbugg, being one of the coolest creepy chicks I know, agreed to swap a couple of stamp images with me... and of course, Bowtie from Stampotique is STILL on my wishlist :)  Thanks, CGB!

I've been wanting to participate in challenges, but just have not had the time or mojo to get it goin' on... so I forced myself to play today!  I created Bowtie Birthday for The Burtonesque Dolls #7 (Burton birthday) & I used Stamp Insanity's SISC14 sketch & card size (dollar bill:  2-5/8"x6").

Fun time... except for sad Mr. Bowtie... suck it up man, it's just another freakin' birthday!  :)  Yeah, remember I said this come March next year when I turn the big 4-0 (GASP!)  Actually it will be more like {GASP... HOLY $%&^, I'M HOW DAMN OLD?!!!}  :)

Stamps:  Bowtie (Stampotique)
Paper:  Bazzill & DCWV cardstocks
Ink:  stamped from CGB, so not sure :)
Other:  Micron pen, foam tape, misc. gems
Copics:  E000, E00, E11, RV06, RV09, BG10, BG49, BG78

Well, I'm off to play more...
... and what have YOU been working on?!!

***ETA... I just noticed that it looks as if Bowtie is sportin' a 70's fro'!!!

LOVE your Bowtie Birthday.
What a nice gal that Creepy Glowbugg is!
Nice card spotlight on the Simply Betty page too btw.
FYI- Michael's has some of their Autumn stuff out (don't ask me) and I saw the spider web ribbon. It's on a roll, and it's wider than the stuff I have, and it's wire edged. And on sale! Nice.

As usual you've outdone yourself. I think it's a real testement to your talent that you can take colored cardstock and a colored image and make such an amazingly beautiful card. If I could come up with something like this, I would always just use cardstock. But unfortunately I'm not you, so I have to use pretty scrapbook paper to make a statement in my cards. You never cease to bore me or amaze me. You are truly very, very talented!!

You always manage to make a great card! Your coloring is awesome and I immediately wondered if you intentionally gave him a 'fro'!!
