Line Dance/ Cowboy Boot Card

Cowboy Boots Card
My apologies, I was trying to be too arty farty but have only succeeded in showing half a card.  Whatever possessed me to miss the top and bottom off.  I just hope you get the gist of what I have done! What a numpty!
Cowboy Boots Close UP
This is a large A5 sized card. The lettering is done using Papermania alphabet stickers and says "Yee Ha, Harry is 60 Today"
The boots are free clipart images, enlarged, cut out and then embellished with small plain stars, flat backed gems and faux stitching along the paler lines, then put on foam pads for a 3D effect. 
The background paper is from  Daisy and Dandelion, “A Winter’s Tale Collection’.  A few hologram stars complete the design.
I always use is a white linen card from The Papermill Shop because I like the texture and effect when it is printed on.  However I have to feed it through my printer very carefully as it is thicker than it likes!  (I have an Espom Photo R220)
My cards always have an insert in a light paper, usually white, but occasionally coloured because it looks classier.  If it is a large card, like this, I print a greeting inside. 

What’s On My Desk Wednesday

I am working on Valentines and Easter ideas at the moment!
Wats on my desk wed
The white mug is on the desk because I bought three porcelain pens in red, green and black with a gift voucher I had for Christmas. I want to see how easy/hard it is to put  a design on it.  I think I will keep it very simple, red hearts  for Valentines Day.
Box of tricks
The box of bits is a bit of a challenge to myself.  I have so much stuff that I have put a selection of stickers in the box and am going to try and use as many as I can on cards and projects this week. As you can see there is a variety of hearts …….so expect plenty of heart cards in the next week or so!
