Bitten By The Bug 2-Boots

What a fun Springy challenge they are having over at Bitten By The Bug 2. The challenge is to use the garden boot cut from the Nate's ABC's cartridge. I thought for a while and did a little sketching while I was watching TV Monday night before I came up with my card. I didn't have a cartridge that had a bench so I made my own using my Gypsy Girl and the George cartridge. I used the rectangle shape and stretched it into the size I wanted for my bench and then did the legs how I wanted them. Then I welded it all together so it would cut out in one piece for my card. I kept looking at it in that kraft paper color and decided I just didn't want the whole bench kraft color, so I cut the piece for the bench part and glued it on. The flower pots are from Pooh and Friends cartridge. I again used my Gypsy Girl to do them. I didn't want the flowers to be the same as the pots so I used the hide contour feature and hid them from the pots and then hid the pots so I would get just the flowers. I cut extra of the pots so I could pop up the top layer. I did a little doodling on the flowers and leaves. I popped my garden boots up in front of the bench. Added some bling to the center of the flowers and the corners of the sentiment piece. I used the Think Spring stamp set from Cardz TV Stamps for my sentiment. I stamped it and then trimmed down the cardstock and rounded the corners of the blue and then white piece behind it. I'm rather pleased with my card. Hope ya'll like it, too!!!! :)
