Card: Boots

I saw this challenge over at heather-bittenbythebug2 and thought golly why Garden boots.  But then I thought, think of it as a challenge.  It helped that my dads birthday is next week and I hadn't made a card yet, so as I scrolled through the boots I had on my cartridges til I found this one on the  'Dude' Cart.  It reminded me of my dad and his work boots, so I welded the image and it's blackout together into a card. Then I cut it out twice so I could add the steal caps and the contrast color inside. I added some depth by distressing and thuoght I was done...

When I took it to show AJ he said wheres the sole!  Darnit...  He was right, it needed a black rubber sole.  So back tot he craft room and out with the Distress Embossing powder ( had to open it...)

I am pretty impressed with the outcome and once again reminded that you can pop out a pretty impressive card in a short time when you play with the Cricut.
