Let me tell you from my heart that life is better than death

It’s challenge time over at Outlawz Sketch again and our fabulous sponsor is The East Wind, today I’m featuring the image Lucy Loo Vampire Queen on my card.

And here’s this week’s sketch.

Now I couldn't make a card with a vampire queen on it and not go dark and a bit gothic.  The sketch was perfect for allowing me to use my blood splattered ribbon, ribbon just happens to be the theme over at The East Wind so I am entering my card in the challenge.

I’ve echoed the jewel on Lucy Loo’s forehead with some metal stampings from my stash and blinged them and Lucy up with some gems also from my stash.  It’s a bit hard to see the background paper but it is from Riddersholm Design and it was just the perfect slightly grungy dark background to this card.

The current theme over at A Step in the Dark is dark fantasy and I think a vampire queen fits that theme perfectly but in case it doesn’t I’m covered by the alternate theme of anything goes.  With my two circle die cuts I’m also entering this in the current challenge over at Southern Girls.

Sure hope you will come play along with this week’s sketch over at the Outlawz.
