I made this card for the Farm Fresh Friday challenge over at The Greeting Farm. This week the challenge is to create a green St. Patrick's Day card and to be honest I didn't think I would get around to making anything for this one. But as I was flipping through my binder of TGF stamps Blush Bettie was looking quite Irish to me... especially once I gave her a nice green dress and some fabulous red hair. ;)
It was my first time inking Bettie up and I couldn't help but do some slight altering to open up her eyes more and I added the four leaf clover to her hand. Otherwise, I kept the card fairly CAS and let her shine. 

Ok, I've got to wrap this one up... another day another dollar.
