The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge & Friday Sketchers

Ok, first of all.....I had some super exciting news a few days ago.... I had WON the grand prize at the blog hop over at

Simply Betty Stamps

I was SO EXCITED to have won all 6 of her Victorian Beauties digis stamps. I was even MORE excited as I have been dying to join in on the fun over at
This week the challenge is to pick your FAV Tim Burton movie and design a card/project with that theme. My fav is well......look at my card and see if you can guess.... I hope you can.
Now I've also used the sketch from over at Friday Sketchers so Im gonna enter it over there as well. (I love their sketches!!) Have you guessed the movie yet??
How bout now?? LOL
It's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory of course. I just thought James here looked SO like Willy Wonka with his long purple coat.... now I got some what fancy with the digi and used both a full view and a close up so that it would fill up my nestie more. And I was inspired by this paper from Little Yellow bicycle that reminded me of a static TV screen. And remember the part where the boy goes INTO the TV screen.... well that's where the idea for the card came from.
Anyhow!!! Im long winded today! :o) I really hope you like my card.
Cheers All!!

Wow, Cheri, I just love you interpretation of the sketch. The TV instead of the tag, very very original. Using the full view and the close-up of the digi image, is also very very interesting! very imaginative. I ADORE. oolors are fab, and coloring is perfect. Beautiful work

I love it! I like the TV and love the ribbon. The paper totally reminds me of a wonky TV, perfect in so many ways. Your colouring, as usual, amazes me. Congrats on winning the stamps, very cool.
