Drunken Stampers #133 - Edward Scissorhands

Hello and good Saturday morning to you all! It's time for the newest challenge at Drunken Stampers #133 - Edward Scissorhands!

Our challenges are based off of movies this term. You can create a project based on the title, the theme, in this case: sewing, or go all out and do BOTH!! This week is team Midnight Margaritas turn to wow you. I choose to combine the title and sewing theme on my card:

...and here is the inside:

I. Love. Tim. Burton. Movies!!!! The more bizarre the better!!! This is one of my favorites of his! And, Johnny Depp. Need I say more?! LOL!

I very recently started using digi stamps. This is by Simply Betty Stamps, and I love how it turned out! After coloring and cutting him out of an oval, I pierced the edges and whip stitched around the panel. I added a heart charm to the bow because, after all, this was a love story. (Aren't ALL Tim Burton movies?!! LOL!) I finished the inside with the perfect sentiment, colored in the heart, stamped a pair of scissors and I was done!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Don't forget to check out what the other Midnight Margaritas have in store for you! Even better, play along! You could be crowned the next Life of the Party!!
