Strange Brew

Good Morning Everyone, and welcome to a new Macabre Monday Challenge at Haunted Design House.  This week the challenge is a recipe ......
Begin with 2 layers (your base layer counts as one layer)
add 1 main image panel 
mix in some metal bits of your choice 
add some drops of black pearls 
Gently fold in 1 punched element 
Tie up nicely with some ribbon or trim,   

put it all together and this is what you get :)

Our sponsor this week is
Strange Skin has a unique selection of digi images that pander more to the horror hounds and macabre minded.  They have darkly beautiful images too, check them out for yourself :)

I have used Corset Heart from their Love n Stuff range.

My base card is matt black cardstock, the second layer is a digi paper from the Blood Red Moon set by Crafty Chaos Designs, the Corset Heart is mounted onto a doily and my Punched Element is created using a Martha Stewart Punch. the Bits of Metal are the Eyelets and the Cross and I have used fine Ribbon as laces on the corset. 
Ribbons, Cross and Black Pearls are all from my stash

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge(s)

Ippity Challenge - Use Bright Colours
Robyn's Fetish - No Flowers
Amusing Challenges - Sketch
Sweet Stampin - Ribbons and Bows

Thanks for stopping by and please call again :)  Now off you go to join in the challenge :)
