Sugar and Spice and....Not Very Nice

So, it's time for a new Tiddly Inks challenge.  Woo and two hoos!  These are always some of my favorite challenges...if you couldn't already tell.  =D  They're always so different...it really makes them fun!

This week is: Sugar and Spice with a Twist.  The twist is to make a sarcastic or humorous card.  Sarcasm?  What's that?  Oh, no, I NEVER use sarcasm....  **evil grin**

Of course, to put together this card, I had to use a sketch from one of my OTHER favorite challenges...Sweet Sketch Wednesday!  Here's the sketch, isn't it fab?!?


I know you're all just chomping at the bit to see my card (right?  RIGHT?  Just say yes, it's ok.  lol) so here it is!


And now for the funny part...


Hee!  At least *I* think it's funny.  My hubby...not so much.  Just kidding, he likes it too.

As soon as I saw this challenge I knew exactly what I was going to do.  I had bought the digi Briar quite a while ago, and if you can't tell because my silver pen was a little goopy, she has barbed wire wrapped around her, her boots and her hair.  Well, when I was at a stamping expo a month or two ago I picked up this fabulous set that had two barbed wire stamps!  I just knew I had to use them together.  Everything else kind of grew from there....the sentiment (because barbed wire HURTS!)...the paper dripping blood.  Then I had to use the black and creme decorative paper from the same line (I know you can't tell 'cause it's on the computer...but the black damask is all fuzzy!  Yay!), and then the ribbon in almost the same pattern but with reversed colors.  Y'all, I'm telling you this card practically made itself!

Ok, that's about enough for now.  I really, really hope you liked it, and I'm sure I'll be seeing you soon.  Thanks for stopping by, and have a great rest of the weekend!
