CD Sunday Challenge - Stepping out


What a  beautiful day we have had today,   the sun is shining, the sky is blue,  its not that warm yet but its a lovely day hopefully it will stay for the Bank Holiday weekend we have this weekend.
This is the card for the CD Sunday Challenge - Stepping out,  I only just made it in time last week, so I put my best foot forward and got it made in plenty of time.
I cut the card in the shape of a boot,   it seems ages since I made a boot,  I covered the boot with a backing paper from Joanne Sheens CD Enchanted Dreams,  I made the holes up the side and put some ribbon in and out for the laces.  Then added a spray of flowers,  with leaves,  and roses in two shades of pink  with a butterfly,  and a die cut label and put a gold peel of greeting.  
I really enjoyed making this card,  as I say its a long time since I did a boot, I think I must make a few more.  The craft room is taking shape,   its just filling all the boxes in the storage in cabinet,  I knew I had a lot of craft stash and I have found a few bits that I had forgotten,  Its good to have a spring clean every so often.
I hope you have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend, whether you stay at home or like us go away.
Until we meet again take care.
