Hello and Happy Saturday! It's time for another challenge over at Dynamic Duos. This week, we are highlighting one of my favorite colors EVER in our "Black Tie" combo...Melon Mambo paired with Basic Black. My, oh my!! Our "dessert option" this week is RIBBON and how can you resist that?
I just received a HUGE box of goodies from the new SU! catalog, including this fabulous stamp set called Bootiful Occasions. In true Texas style, I had some rootin' tootin' fun showcasing this blinged-out "Boot-day" card! I used the awesome sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for inspiration this week.I used some of the *new* SU! embossing folders on this one: Fancy Fan behind the fussy-cut boot and the Chevron Embossing folder on the left panel. Of course, in Texas we tend to go BIG, so I had fun with the polka dots and the blinged accents. Check out the jeweled button accents around the sentiment. They are new and I just love them! The boot and the sentiment are heat embossed, too.
A quick shot of the inside of the card, continuing the birthday cheer with a "Kick up yer boots" sentiment. Yee haw!!
I really want to give some extra-special thanks to my "little-sister" Kristina for helping me create this card. She completely ROCKS and I love that she put up with my crazy OCD creative-determinaion while getting this all together. :) We dug up some old photos last night and I wanted to share one of my favorites. Look at that super-short hair on both of us...smiling in the North Dakota sun from way back when....
I sure hope you will join in the fun over at Dynamic Duos this week! The challenge is open until Thursday, June 21 at Noon (PDT). Please stop by and share some bloggin' smiles with the rest of the gals on the Design Team:
