Pieced Cowboy Boot

Well it feels like it has taken forever to finish this card. I knew I wanted to use these cool leather effect cardstock my friend Sonya sent me ages ago for the large boot and the piecing was pretty easy but for the rest of the card I drew a complete blank. It has been very frustrating as I have so many projects to try and do by Monday. But my stubbornness wouldn't let me move onto something else until it was done.

Oh that reminds me; we have family visiting next week so I will probably get little to no time in here to make anything or show you anything once they arrive. Please bare with me as they don't drive and I will need to play chauffeur so I may be quiet while they are here.

Onto the card. I finally settled on Brocade Blue and espresso cardstock. I distressed it a whole bunch and punched out some stars which I added with a large brass brad.

I tried to take a close up pic to show you the texture of the card Sonya sent me but you can't see it very well.
