Spring Basket Betty Card

If you did the Simply Betty Blog Hop yesterday, than you have already seen this card...If you missed the hop you can still check it out HERE.

This is the card I made for my Spring basket buddy on Simply B Stamps Fan Page.  Betty gave all the participants this image and we were to create a card/tag to accompany our swap.  I LOVED this image.  I knew as soon as I saw it what I wanted to do....

Here's the details:

Image:  Spring Basket Betty; colored with pencils then accented with lime Stickles on the shoes and scarf, Smooch Silver on the chrome of the bicycle and Glossy Accents on the sunglasses and bicycle tire.  I "fussy cut" the entire image.  I printed and colored only the basket of a second image, accented it with Distressed Stickles in straw and "fussy cut" it out.  I adhered the second basket piece to the first image with pop dots.  I then added punched flowers accented with rhinestones to the basket.

Sentiment:  a rub on from my scrap basket

Papers:  from my scrap stash

Embellishments:  BoBunny dotted ribbon in black and clear flourish stickers

I really loved how this card came out...it was so hard to mail it away :)  Thanks for looking!
