A Betty Special

Betty over at Simply Betty Stamps had some fantastic news recently and released this special image. This card is for her son Christian and his NEW bride Yazmin. I didn't want to post my card till after their wedding. Their colour scheme was lime, black and cream so these were the colours I chose for my card. I selected some papers from Far Far Hill and distressed the edges with the help of Tim Holtz using the tool and old paper ink pad. Next I printed some Halloween paper from Michele R Designs onto vellum. I cut out the spider and added it to the top corner leaving the spider free to jiggle in the wind.

Paper - Far Far Hill, Halloween 6x6 digital papers by Michele R Designs & Paper Pizazz HOTP Vellum Swirls
Embellishments -Hobbycraft gemstones
Sentiment & Image - Simply Betty Stamps coloured with ProMarkers
