Girls Don't Just Break Hearts

***Post 3 of the day...scroll down to see my Happileigh Scrappin' and Anita Be Stampin' posts.***

Well, once again I'm running down to the wire...45 minutes until the end of a challenge.  Between classes, work and birthdays, the past week/weekend has just gotten away from me.  I hurried home today because the Tiddly Inks challenge this week is something I've been planning since I first heard of it.  The challenge is Going Goth, and I bought the cutest little Tiddly Inks image to use: Lillie Lolita!  Before I show my card, I want to show the sketch that inspired me.  Here is this week's Sketch N Stash sketch:

Isn't it fabulous?  As for the stash part, I used old, neglected bat embellishments, a Tiddly Inks sentiment, and a skull tag embellishment from DCWV's Rock Queen collection.  My new stash is, of course, the image, and also the black flowers.  Here is my card:

Lilli was colored with Copics.  I created the skull and lips background using some old stamps from a stamp expo.  Papers are a mix of DCWV's Rockstar Stack, the Breathless Collection by Marah Johnson, and a lace transparency by Teresa Collins.

I hope you enjoyed my little goth cutie!  Thanks for stopping by, and I'll see you soon!
