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

Our Darling Betty Gave to us...The Grinch!!!  Our assignment was to create a very Grinchy Christmas scene using one of the always gorgeous Emos!!

I used Candy Cane London and stuck with the most grinchy green that I had!  ;)  I LOVED the challenge for myself of working with all one color.  Totally not my standard!!

Betty is colored with my Copic and Prismacolor markers.  I backed her with Basic Grey paper in a cool green houndstooth pattern.

My card base is SU! Wild Wasabi followed by a slice of Love, Elsie 'Noel' DP.  I used some cozy green fiber to wrap around the card a few times followed by some vintage postage stamps as some funky embellishments.

London's eye lashes are twinkled up with rhinestones placed 'just so'.  =)

I added a strip of green polka dotted ribbon behind my main layer and as my final touches added a tiny green tag with a green brad through the top adorned with one rhinestone.  And lastly her green skully friend that was sent to me in a care package long ago by a fellow DT member.

I hope you enjoy and have been inspired!!!
