Tiddly Inks Tuesday ~ Reel me in!

Happy Tiddly Inks Tuesday!!   

We’ve got another awesome challenge for you this week ~ REEL ME INcreate a card inspired by a Scary or Summer movie!    

Ugh, as I’m typing this I just realized I think I took the challenge completely wrong!!    My card is inspired by the new (summer release) Pirates of the Caribbean movie!    Hmmm, I suppose it could be considered a scary movie!   LOL

Since several people I know have MAJOR crushes on Johnny Depp, I know it won’t be hard to find a recipient for this one!    This gorgeous pirate from Tiddly Inks Gothic Pinups collectionis called Pirate Jane … a perfect match for the one and only Captain Jack Sparrow!

Sooo, time to hop over to the Tiddly Inks challenge blog and take a peek at all the awesome cards from the DT – I’m sure you’ll be inspired to join us for this fun challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today.

    Hey it still works for both challenges. She is definitely bad to the bone and it’s perfect for a Movie Inspired card, if you hadn’t of said anything, no one would know.
