Have a Ghoulish Birthday with the BBB - Burtonesque style!

Hello and welcome to an exciting day
at The Busy Beauties Boutique!


Not only do we have some marvelously macabre new images to share with you today on the Blog Hop, but we also have some fun and funky friends joining us:

 
The Burtonesque Dolls!


Our new images are inspired by the Tim Burton classic, "THE CORPSE BRIDE", and BBB illustrator Thomas Goins has really outdone himself with these amazing images! We thought they would be right up the Dolls' alley, so we invited them along for the hop *and* are super excited to announce that Busy Beauties will be sponsoring their challenge next week!



I'm Kelly, the beginning of the hop, but if you get lost along the way, click the links below and it will get you back on track!  And you'll definitely love the hop ~ we have prizes so fab, it's freaky! Be sure to hop along and leave lots of comment-love, because there are TWO Secret Beauties or Dolls along this Burtonesque inspired hop… and TWO winners will be selected from their blog comments to receive 5 (yep, FIVE) Busy Beauties images of his/her choice! So whether you are in the mood to be beauty-ful or get funky, we've got you covered.

My card for you actually is the image released during the last hop, but I am bringing it back - ghoulishly fun and eerily yummy!  My mom is a former wedding designer/planner and you know!!  This cake ISN'T that far off, lol ..... she had many requests for Black and White cakes .  In fact, it was quite the trend for awhile!  I would see her baking, then icing the cakes and couldn't figure out for the life of me why anyone would chose B & W (a color combo I admittedly struggle with BIG TIME (instant migraine for me!!)) but when they were done ..... OH.  MY.  WORD.  Simply STUNNING! 






So on with the hop!  You are here, so next you should head over and see the amazing Suzi's blog and see what she has for you to see!

At the end of the hop, which is also your NEXT STOP, the new Busy Beauties Creation Station CHALLENGE is waiting for you. It's a sketch challenge provided by PaperAddict Catherine, who is a member of both the Busy Beauties and The Burtonesque Dolls DTs. We hope you'll play along! You have until 11:59 EDT on June 2nd to link your creation at the Creation Station.


In the meantime, we hope you'll have fun hopping and find lots of other-worldly inspiration! Enjoy the show!

  27. Ok,so this is what a "Not good at Black & White looks like?" Some how I thought that how my Black cards turn out is how a "Not good" looks. Notice I didn't say white in my discription of mine. Kelly glad to see you back up and running again. This is absolutely intinidatingly FANTASTIC!!!!!! Thank You for taking time to participate in the HOP.

  33. The paper, flowers and faux pearls make the card look elegant but the image gives it a nice twist. It makes it look elegant and a little ghoul glam. Its a great wedding card for the modern ghoulish bride.
    Simply Beautiful!
