Simply Betty Stamps - On The First Day Of Christmas...

Ok so NOW that I realize it, the challenge for the first day of our Simply Betty Stamps 12 Days of Christmas was supposed to include a HALLOWEEN character....I will clearly be hitting the craft table again in the am to add that to my stash...and to the challenge blog!  But OOPS for now I'll chalk it up to too much insanity going on (what else is new?) and show you what I did make!!

My first day of Betty Christmas uses the Christmas Margo image from the awesome Punky Teens line!  I first printed and colored Margo with  mostly my Prismacolor pencils and one or two Prisma markers.

My card base is chocolate brown measuring at 6.5 x 4.  I used a slice of the gorgeous Eco Park paper as my one DP in the background.  I then used a large selection of tiny ribbon scraps that I had.  I distressed them all...some by inking them up, some by tugging at their edges, and others just left as they were.  But I wanted a super textured vibe and really grungy feel.  I used my QKD acrylic stamp wings in a Brilliance blue that were heat set and trimmed out and added behind Margo.

I just think she looks so sweet that she needed some wings.  I used silver pipe cleaners and a scrap of brown gingham ribbon to create a tiny little flower patch in the upper left hand corner balanced out with a few individually placed rhinestones next to them.

My sentiment was added using Making Memories puffy scrapbook stickers.  I kept it simple and to one word...cheer.  A perfect sentiment for this time of matter what you celebrate!!

I used the same blue DP from the outside to decorate the interior of the card.  I chose a piece of taupe, velvet ribbon (same as on the front), tattered it a bit and then ran it vertically on the interior of the card and added 3 ... using the same puffy letters.

I hope you enjoy and have been inspired!!

Here are the deets for the entire 12 days!!
