Christmas Boot

This is my 2nd card for the challenge this month at Lady Anne's using the digi image provided by DS4J. I have coloured the image using Promarkers and then highlighted with Glossy Accents plus gems for berries. The image reminded me of a boot so I have fussy cut round it into a boot shape. The small boot embellishment is by Tando Creative which I have coloured with Promarkers  and added Glossy Accents and Gems.
Backing paper is from Holly Hobbie Christmas Joy paper collection free with
Cardmaking  & Papoercraft magazine.
Red Glitter,  snippets from a glitter sheet pack by Craftime.
Tando Creative boot( part of recent winnings  from Crafty Hazelnuts Challenges).
