Boots are Absolutely Fabulous

     I have only had one pair of cowboy boots in my life.  And that was when I was a little girl.  I have not been interested in them as an adult.  I guess because I am not very tall.  Well, actually I am short.  And I don't think they look good on short people.
     But if I were to have a pair of them, I would  have a pair  like these.

I used my Gypsy to make the card.  The boot comes from the OLD WEST cartridge.  I used the gypsy to weld two boots together.  The card opens at the top.

     The boot come s from the OLD WEST cartridge, and is cut at 5.25".  It will fit in an A2 envelope.  I used paper from K&Company and Recollections.  I used Color Box chalk to ink around the edge of the boot and boot straps for a distressed look.  I added a spur to the heel of the boot.  It is also from the OLD WEST cartridge.  The center of the spur  is a tiny red brad.  And the silver spur paper is from AC Specialty.  The swirl is cut from the ELEGANT CAKES cartridge and cut at 1".I added some small red rhinestones to the swirl.  I also used small god beads to add interest and style to the boots.  And lastly I tied a red bow mad of bandana ribbon to the top of the boot.  The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms stamps and says "absolutely Fabulous".  
     The inside of the card has small gold beads with another Scrappy Mom's stamp that says,"Your the Best".  


     I am so happy with the outcome of the card.  I can't wait to send it to someone, and hope they will like it as much as I do.  Oh, how I wish I could wear cowboy boots!
