13 days of Halloween - Simply Betty style

Hello everyone!  I'm feeling like total crap... spent most of the day in bed with fever and a really bad cough... man... my oldest came home with a cold and right away I end up sick :(

I'm still here to share with you a card that I made WAY back to participate in the contest for the 13th days of Halloween over at Simply Betty and I'm one of the lucky 6 contenders now for the title of Halloween Princess as well as a fabulous prize.

I finally get to share with you the make that I did to participate in this challenge!  Hope you like it... took me forever to do... lol

To make this card I used the Betty Boos house, Witchy Mrs Boo, Franken Babe Betty and Spirited Betty.  I printed the house a few times... and one smaller version to actually use as a template to make the shape of the card.  Must be the most elaborate card that I ever managed to make...  I didn't have any acetate so I used an old package and cut out the plastic to use it to hold my witch and Franken Babe.

So the house was paper pieced with some image that I found online and I also paper pieced the coor.  The rest was colored with my copics and spectrum noir.  I used some bat stickers as well.

Here's a closer look at the house
And here's Franken Babe Betty
And here's the cute little witch.  I used some sparkly markers for the eyelids
And here's the inside of the card where I used some papers from MME - Blackbirds
And a closer look at the cute Spirited Betty
