My First Burtonesque Dolls Challenge as a DT Member

I am so happy to show you my first card as a member of the Burtonesque Dolls and join them in their 4th challenge "An Affair To Remember".  This week we are partying with the Busy Beauties gals, Carolyn and company, who are sponsoring our challenge with a chance to win 5 images.  YES 5 IMAGES!!!
This week's inspiration comes from Timothy Burton's "The Corpse Bride".  Create a new card, ATC, scrap page or project including this theme.  

I am also including 2 other challenges with my card today:
Stamptacular Sunday who requested pearls and swirls
Cute Card Thursday who offered this sketch.

On a wedding day it's all about the bride so I focused on her and her bouquet, of which were very dead flowers, in "The Corpse Bride" and used an image from Busy Beauties Boutique called "Emily~The Bride".

So grab an image and join me in this week's challenge!! 

PaperEverlasting Beauty (I'm not even kidding) from upsy daisy designs
EmbellishmentsBranches from outside, Wild Orchid flowers, Kaisercraft pearls, Jenni Bowlin Pearl & Rhinestone pins, raffia ribbon, Glossy Accents and Twinklets.
Punches:  Martha Stewart leaf punch (which you can hardly see in the bouquet she is holding)
Ink:  Colored With Copics and Momento Ink
