Betty Boop!

We visited Universal on our vacation and I loved the section of the park that had old comic strip characters.  They even had Betty Boop!  I was inspired to make a birthday card for my husband's cousin.  I used a Spellbinder's die for the face- the name of it escapes me.  Her eyes are from the SU Owl punch.  I enlarged the above photo to make a template for her hair.  That was really the toughest part!  Her chest is from Valita's post at Valentine's.  You can check out  her blog to get directions here-
It was fun trying to come up with the right punches to make Betty come to life!  I will probably make more cards from things I saw at Disney.  What an place to find inspiration- it was around every corner.  I took alot of pictures of the sights but I took just as many pictures of things that I thought, " wouldn't that make a great card", or things with color combinations that I would never think of!  You just never know where inspiration can be found.  Hope you like my Betty Boop!


  1. Very imaginative! Great job! Love the Betty Boop!

  2. What a great rendition of Betty Boop! It makes a fabulous card and I really like the layout you chose for it. I look forward to seeing what inspiration you call on the next time and the way you solve the creation of your characters. TFS

  3. Love her eyelashes. Great job on Betty. Love to find inspiration when I travel.
