Of the sweet years…

My favourite stamp company, Simply B Stamps, is turning four this month and us DT gals are celebrating with a blog hop featuring Betty’s awesome birthday collection of Betty Boos.  If you’ve come here from the lovely Irene’s blog you’re on the right track, if not, head on over to the SBS blog to start from the beginning as you aren’t going to want to miss any of the beautiful cards the talented DT have made.
My card features the gorgeous Birthday Goddess, loving the floaty toga she is wearing and her glorious hair!  I usually agonise over colours when I first start on an image and go looking for paper to make my card but not with this one.  Why?  Because I just used Betty’s favourite colours of course.

To make up my card I followed the current sketch at Digi Sketch, I’ve also got their optional twist of a stamp covered.  I did add in the bottom element to get my sentiment in, which comes with the image.  Birthdays are the theme over at Jo’s Scrap Shack so I am also entering my card there.

You all know how much I love my layers, a good thing too for this card where I wanted to cover off all of Betty’s favourite colours.  With all the layers I am linking this in Suzy Bee’s Bloomin’ Challenge.

Now head on over to the delightful Rebecca’s blog and check out the stunning creations she’s made with these fantastic Birthday Betty Boo images.  And if you’re a bit lost, I’ve got the full blog hop list at the bottom of my post.
