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).

LOVE this card Mrs A - how clever to cut the sentiment into a boot shape - although with your keen eye for seeing beyond what's a first impression I'm not at all surprised..

LOVE the teeny Tando boot - it's perfect coloured, done with Glossy Accents and then some gems.

Hugs, Di xx

A very jolly Christmas card, Val. I was just thinking about Christmas, which I seldom do. I was thinking about making a few cards, I only send five. Mine won't be in the least bit Christmassy, not like yours.
I might do a wintry scene!
Have a lovely Sunday, Val!
