Bootiful Christmas

Do you ever start working on a card and come up with an idea for a totally different card?  This happens to me all the time, which is why I often have such a mess of a craft desk.  I always seem to have 2 or 3 projects in the works...but at least I finish them and clean my desk off before the day is done.  (Only to mess it up again the next day!)
I was working on a birthday card for my dear friend DeeDee, when the idea struck me to make a Christmas card using the cowboy boot from Bootiful Occasions. Yee Haw!!  Maybe I was still in non-traditional holiday stamp mode from the latest challenge over at The Friday Mashup. :)
I kept this very simple, adding just a bit of sparkle along the stitching on the boot and the brads to give a little extra western touch.

Supplies Used:

Paper ~ Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Festival of Prints DSP
Ink ~ Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler
Stamp Sets ~ Bootiful Occasions, Merry Minis, Sweet Essentials
Other Supplies ~ Simply Scored, Metallic Brads, Merry Minis {star} Punch, Dazzling Details

I think I may have to make a few more of these to send out to all of my horse loving friends this Christmas!

Happy Stamping!
