I finally got the last of the Betsy Bluebell cards done! Well at least for now. I am sure I will use the stamps again. She was really easy and fast to color. I just seem to have a hard time getting back into the swing of crafting these days!
My friend Linda calls Betsy "that little straight haired girl". Not sure what Linda has against straight hair, but I think it is easy to color! HA HA HA

I once again made part of the image come off the card. I decided to have the balloons I made with the Cricut come off the top of the card. I coordinated the colors of the cardstock with the colors of the balloons on the image *once again okie rolls her eyes at herself for pointing out the obvious*.
Since the balloons were shadowed and layered it did give them enough "body" to be thick enough not to bend easily. I used my Scotch Quick Dry glue to put them together. I ordered 5 bottles not long ago from Joann's since Walmart stopped carrying it.
The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Curvy Verses set. I got this set a few years back and find that I still use it quite often. Of course most of my Stampin Up stamps are sentiment ones, can't ever have too many of those! I stamped it in Olive Green to match the card.
I had a few strips of the flag patterned paper left and just cut them in 1" strips to add to the inside. I think I will be doing more to the inside of my cards because I think it adds a little something extra and it's a good way to use up small scraps.
