With The Right Boots.....

With the right boots you can do anything! At least that's how this card makes me feel! Wow, get a load of these funky boots! If I had these wild funky boots on, I'd definitely be wild and crazy and feel like I could do anything!

"Boots" is this week's featured image, at Shelly's Images. I'm sure you can tell that I had a lot of fun with creating my project with this image! So fun and versatile! Think of all the fun ideas for this image! And, these boots are for sale for a special price, today only, in the Shelly's Images store. Dance on over there and get these boots for yourself at the special sale price!

For my fun "funky meets girly" card today, I am using the boots image, from Shelly's Images. I had this image all colored for my project and then it hit me... These images just scream out, PAPER PIECE ME!" Okay, well maybe it wasn't the boots that were screaming out at me... Maybe it was just the little voices inside my head! But anyway, I grabbed my boot and headed out to Hobby Lobby to find the perfect paper! Oooooo and I just loved this pink animal print paper when I seen it! How funky! Now boots like THAT would make me feel like I could do anything! (Or maybe it'd just mean I was crazy enough to wear boots like that! LOL) I bought the pink, black, gray & white striped paper and the pink animal print paper and rushed home to create! The black and white zebra striped paper is from my stash but turned out to be the perfect accent paper!

I paper pieced the boots with the pink animal print paper and added accents to the outline, the heels and the zipper area, with black and grey Promarkers. The embellishments (ribbon and flowers) are from my stash. The glittery flowers are Dazzlers by Petaloo and add some yummy sparkle. My card fits the sketch at Sparkle Dreams, with some extra elements added.

I made this card for my online friend, Lynn, who's just found out she has made it as a contestant in a talent competition! Put your fun, funky boots on, and you can do anything! Whoo Hoo!! You go, girlie!
