The Right Pair of Boots Card

I'm so excited and nervous today!! Our cards go live for the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol Contest at noon mountain time... stop by and vote for your favorite here!

Our challenge for this round was to use a household item somewhere on our card... that means something you would find and use around the house. There is so many cute products in my LSS that would fit in this category! I ended up making four cards and had the hardest time choosing which one to submit! I'll share the runners up later this week but first, let me show you the one I chose...

All products by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Stamps: Scene from the Garden set, Fifth Avenue Floral set
Ink: Dusty Durango, Creamy Caramel, Baja Breeze, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou Classic inks; Jet Black StazOn
PaperL Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand, Dusty Durango cardstock; cardstock by Bazzill, Patterned paper by Pink Paislee
Accessories: Crystal Effects, Very Vanilla wide grosgrain ribbon, Aqua Painter, Paper Piercer, White Signo Gel pen, Stampin' sponges, Dimensionals

I ended up choosing this one because it was my favorite out of the bunch. I love the watercolored boots all in a row with the one pair standing out... and, I loved the quote! I had a hard time deciding if boots really were a household item and for me, they are. Growing up, they were a necessity... I lived in a small town near Seattle, WA and we had cows... I still see them every day around my house- just in smaller sizes! Hee!

The other cards I made might have fit the theme a little better but this one was still my favorite. I hope you like it, too!

Thanks for taking a peek today and don't forget to go vote at Paper Crafts!
