Welcome to the Simply Betty Fans Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from Anita's blog.  If you are just joining the hop and wish to start from the beginning, please hop on over to The Simply Betty Blog.

I discovered Simply Betty Stamps over a year ago when I was searching for a Jack Skellington digi to create a card for my oldest daughter.  Jack is her absolute favorite character.  In fact, she has an adult-sized Jack Skellington doll in her room.  Since then, Betty's stamps have become one of my faves to work with.

Recently, she released The Betty Villains, and OH MY! I just had to have the entire set!  I was hoping to enter one of the recent Halloween challenges over at the Simply Challenged Challenges blog with one of the images, but with everything going on at home, I wasn't able to complete it on time!  So, I decided to finish it up and use it for this hop.

The challenge was the Sweet Treats challenge with a choice of using candy corn or caramel apples as your inspiration.  I decided to go with caramel apples.

I used brown and green for my color scheme.  I went with Betty Sea Witch simply because I was dying to color her.  I know she doesn't really "go" with the sentiment, but like I said, I just HAD to color her!  I used bright green Copics as well as browns that I thought resembled a caramel brown.

The sentiment I used was actually the sentiment meant for the Evil Queen (Snow White) digi, but because this was a caramel-apple-inspired card, I decided to use it on this card.  I had some Halloween paper in my stash that was bright apple green and covered with eyeballs.  LOL  I used an apple embossing folder on some brown cardstock, added bright green ribbon and twine, and also added an apple charm to complete my card.

I really had a lot of fun coloring Betty Sea Witch even though it took me about six tries before I was satisfied!

Thanks for stopping by!  Please hop on over to Veronica's blog next!
