Simply Betty DT Call Card #3

Sorry for the long post but I though it was a funny story to share.
Im sure we have all done this!
Simply Betty DT Call is now down to the final hours and here is my last card.
This card has a funny story behind it. We are big racing fans and we went to our local track to watch the race and when we got home I popped on blogger and saw that there was 1 hr and 12 minutes left for the SBS Guest DT call. I had already posted two cards to the SBC blog and could have posted one of them there but wanted to make a new card for the SBS GDT. So with just over an hour to make a card I figured I could do it. I was choosing to use my Spellbinders that I use all the time.  Well you know what when they say time flies when your having fun, WELL they are not lying there. Now I'm on the east coast and I am 3 hours ahead of the west coast where Betty is.  Well when I had a good part of the card done I figured I would pop on SBS to see what time was left. YEP what did it say CLOSED!
Now it was 1:30am my time. I got up left everything on my desk and went to bed.  Well this week has been a very busy week with making cards and other projects and here we are again with only a few hours left. But I still have time so here is my card.

I used the very pretty Betty that you can find in the store HERE.
She was colored with Copics and Stickles. I added some cute spider brads to the bottom of the card. I actually flipped an square easel card to make it a diamond shape. The spellbinders I used were Labels Five, Large and Small Deckled Rectangles and I also used Fleur De Lis cut up around my Labels 5. Colorbox Ink, some fiber lace, Glittered card stock and some scraps of my spiderweb DP. I also have a little skull hanging from one of my flowers.

Here are my other two cards that I have already entered into the challenge.

Thanks for looking and if your quick on the ink, whip up a card and head on over to SBC and add your card.
