Simply Betty Challenge Friday!!

It's a fantastically snowy morning here on the East Coast and I'm so excited to wake up to another winter wonderland!!  YAY!  Another snuggly day with  my babies!!!  Lots of creating to do!! 

Today at Simply Betty we have a fabulous challenge for you!!!  Our very own darling Cheri created a beautiful sketch for us to follow! 
I was craving to use one of the stunning Spooky Hallow digis!  I was drawn to Morticia as I wanted to create a non-traditional style "Valentine's Day" card.  She was PERFECT!  
I colored Morticia with my Copic markers (hair) and Prismacolor Pencils - the rest of her.  I sponged half of her background with red craft ink.  I used my Quickie Glue pen to color in some of her petals and the leaves of her flowers.  I coated them in my new SU! Super Nova glitter and set the panel aside to dry.

My cardbase is white, followed by mattes of rusty orange and a few different slices of scrap DP that I had lying around. I used my bird on a wire ribbon as my main accent followed by three tiny strips to match the sketch...roughly  ;)  

I inked, heat embossed, coated with glue and then glittered up a chipboard birdie that I had in my stash.  I loved how it went with the birdie ribbon I had added.
This weeks prize is a collection of papers and chipboard from Bo Bunny's Crazy Love collection!!!!
I hope you enjoy and have been inspired to play along with us at SBC!!!
