Happy Birthday Janet!

Today over at Corrosive Challenges we have a sketch for you, and we are still being sponsored by Queen Kat stamps for this month. BUT, because today is Janet's birthday, she's also organised a prize package for one lucky winner of this week's sketch challenge. And for every 10 entrants we get, she'll add in another prize! So what are you waiting for? Even if you don't have time to play along this week, I would love it if you'd pop over to the blog and wish Janet a Happy Birthday. She's a very special lady, and a wonderful DT co-ordinator.
This is the card I made following the sketch, and it is specifically for Janet's birthday. Have a wonderful, wonderful day, filled with smiles and laughter. And maybe just a little bit of wickedness :P

The image is Devil Rio by Simply Betty Stamps, and the papers are from the Under a Blood-red Moon collection at Crafty Chaos Designs.

1. Use a creepy image (or make a cute image creepy!)
2. Use Black
3. Distressing (around the image)
4. Sparkle
5. Mix patterns you normally wouldn't have tried together. This was the one I had most trouble with, and I only managed it if you include glitter and ditressing :P
6. Words

8. Punches (can you see the scallops around the frame?)

10. No flowers.
