LB Lays Down a Challenge

Over at the Smeared & Smudged forum our own Lady Brayton challenged us to make something. "I dare you to make a scary or gory project, but you must include glitter and the color pink in some way."
Well it was directed at me although more of the girls rose to the challenge as well. What could I do but rise to it and kick my aversion to pink to the side. 
Here's what I came up with...

The heart from the Smeared Ink rubber "Quoth The Raven" set. It's only available in digi format at the moment but will be available in rubber for February's Rubber Club set. You need to sign up really quickly if you want this. Stamped in red onto some DP that had pink music lines printed on it. I brushed it over with red perfect pearls to give that glistening blood look then added a touch here and there of red glitter. Cut out and mounted onto an ATC that had been sprayed with shimmery pink and black through a prima mask I have. It's actually one of hot air balloons, but with the bleed through of colours it looks like talons to me  - yep, me likey. The heart is a TH die cut from a scrap of pink card. Coated with star dust stickles. A pair of love birds on a heart charm and a pink metal rose added. More glitter in the corners and some hand written words "You make my heart sing" to tie in with the music on the stamped heart.
AND I didn't get the cold sweats that I would have done a year ago using pink! My crafting HAS changed, lol.

I'd like to enter this into the challenge over at
