Little Betsy Bluebell

Happy Sunday to all of you.  I hope you're having a wonderful weekend.  I found a little time to get my fingers inky so I've got a new card to share with you today.

This little cutie is Betsy Bluebell and she's a Penny Black stamp.  Isn't she adorable?  I love her outfit, especially that  little pleated skirt.  I colored Betsy with my Prismacolor pencils and gamsol and added lots of Icicle Stickles to her balloons.  I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border and the corners, and added flowers and greenery, and a little birthday tag. 

Thank you for stopping by!
