Betty Boots - oh whoops I forgot!

I had a few problems photographing this one, this is the third attempt (the sparkles in the cardstock cause problems) and now it has gone from here so I can't try again. I didn't actually forget Vanessa's Birthday last Saturday, I just ran of of time to make a card and I knew I would see her this weekend. Now it might seem a little silly that I didn't just send one of the cards from the two boxes I have of them already made, but I am weird like that, I like to make the card for the individual when I can. This isn't the card I intended to make originally but when sorting through some stamps I found this set that I bought recently and it was crying out to be used. 
Betty Boots is the creation of That Craft Place, the digital images are sold under the name of Ditzie Designs on Etsy and some of them have now been made into stamp sets by Creative Expressions. I really love this character, but she took around four hours to colour mainly due to her hair. I used Graph'it Markers to colour her hair, and ProMarkers for the rest of her. All die cuts are Spellbinders. The sentiment came with the set, and inside the card I used another of the sentiments from the set which says that it is a good job you get more patient the older you get, or something like that.
Daughter in Law is a Papermania stamp from a clear set, and I added some ribbon and buttons from stash.
