The children are our future . . .so beware!

Well, it's Monday and that means it's time for some more Macabre Mayhem over at the Haunted Design House blog. This week's Macabre Monday challenge is called "Pink on the Brink" and we want to see some pink on your cards.

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween page, project or card using pink in an edgy and dark way. Edgy & pink... what puts you on the brink? The brink of insanity... the brink of catastrophe... the brink of death?

AND we have a sponsor this week; you could win some Tickled Pink goodies!
My card uses the fabulous Willow from the Lil Lolita range at Tickled Pink, and the sentiment is by Crafty Chaos Designs (me :P) The roses around the edge actually started as one of the papers from my Halloween Bride set, but then I got rid of all the colour and added extra black. Anywhooo, these are the challenges that I'm entering with this card:
Lil Lolita Boutique - A rose is a rose . . .
Tickled Pink Monthly Challenge - followed the sketch
Wildflower Wednesdays - polka dots
Pixie Dust Studio - lots of dots
Aud Sentiments - anything goes
Crafty Sentiments - Monochrome with a hint of one colour. Now, in this case, I took Monochrome to mean "black grey white", rather than "all the same shade". I'm not entirely sure that's correct, but I had fun and I love the end result, so all is good :)
