Ooo, ooooo, Tish, when you speak French you drive me wild!

The tall dark and handsome lothario on my card today is one from the Simply B Stamps’ vault and the Teen Scene Halloween 2011 collection, Christian Addams.

I thought I’d contrast with the black background but still keep with the Halloween colours so I did his suit in purple but of course he had to be carrying a red rose.  Thing on his shoulder is a little more gruesome than I remember from the TV series, I don’t think they ever showed the severed top there but this is still a cute and quirky image and not to gory to be anything but G rated.

The layout follows the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and as the card features two designer papers as well as two types of beads I’m also linking it up at Papertake Weekly where their current challenge is to use two of something.  With all the fussy cutting by hand (we won’t talk about the repair job required on the rose) I’m also entering it in the current challenge at Scrap-Creations Challenge.
