Kick up your heels!

Today I am going to share a card that I created for my Father-in-law for Father's Day, but it could be a great birthday card also.  I got my inspiration for this card from the Let's Capture these Sketches weekly card sketch.

(sorry . . . I forgot to grab the image of the sketch to insert, and it is no longer on the blog)

Here is the card I created . . .


I used twine instead of a hard band of paper on my card, and my featured item is in a square instead of a circle as they did.  I used my Cuttlebug to emboss a snake skin texture on the bold colored papers . . . my Father-in-law loves his cowboy boots, and I thought "snake skin" boots would be a great theme for him.

Ironically, I think this card would also work good for the sketch at CreativelyYoursSketches.blogspot.com

Here is their sketch . . . .

Funny how this one works for both of these sketches.
