Meet Bashful Bettie by Sherri Baldy

Bashful Bettie is as cute as she is bashful.  I had a blast coloring this beautiful digi by Sherri Baldy Stamps.  I love being on the Scrapbook Stamp Society Design Team, getting the opportunity to play with all of the wonderful digi's created by all of the wonderful artists.

I won Bashful Bettie in a name this digi contest, so please make sure you always add your ideas for a name when you see them posted.  You too could win a great digi.

I had a lot of fun with this image.  I knew when I first saw her that she needed to be pink. Of course, those of you who know me well, know that pink is my favorite color and I do a lot of my cards with pink tones.  However, being this bashful, I thought she needed a really pretty pink dress with lavender and yellow highlights.

Bashful Bettie as shy as can be wants to profess her love to her sweet heart.  So, after I colored her up using my Crayola Colored Pencils, I framed her first with a pink sheet of card stock, then layered that over a yellow.  both colors were intended to bring out the strips in the plaid card stock I used for the base.  I complemented Bashful Bettie with a bright pink bow to match her dress, a little bit of ivy to highlight the green in the plaid and the leaves on her dress then used a stick pin to hold the "I Love You" sentiment.  I topped the whole look off with three pink pearls in the bottom right hand corner.

What do you think?  Isn't she just the cutest?
