{muhuwah ahh ahh ahh ahhhh}
... uh yeah, that was my attempt at the evil, shifty eyed, greedy bad guy laugh... in case you didn't know :)
The contest ends Saturday night July 17th, so check the SBS blog for details.

And now... on to the the lovely Summer Betty!


Isn't she awesome?  For this card, I wanted Betty to be a vamp.  So instead of tanning herself by sunlight, she's getting a moon-tan :)  I added a little white lace Stickles to the moon & top of the umbrella as well as some little gray gems to Betty's suit, hair batty & umbrella.


Definitely one of my faves of the release... cute spiderweb sarong, strategically placed bat, and the webbie beach umbrella.  Me thinks she has a bit of a "come hither" look, no?  :)  And do you see the texture of the moon... me likey!
