I Brake for Victorian Boots & LOVE!

Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday to all!
Today I wanted to share my  card I created for SplitCoastStampers challenge using the BEAUTIFUL  I Brake For Stamps "Victorian Boot"! I also used the beautiful Phrase "Bouquet of Love" , and stamped just the Love for you part on my card. LOVE that about stamping, you can always pick the words if you don't have enough room to stamp all. 

My Card Instructions:

Card Base-
Cut White card stock 5 3/4" x 11 1/2" and score at 5 3/4" so you can fold in half. Next I cut my blue'ish colored card stock at 5 1/2" x 5 1/2 " and the dp on that at 5 1/4" x 5 1/4".
Card Layers-I then cut a 5 x 5 piece of white card stock to create the frame, using Martha Stewart punch around the page. It will change the size depending on what design you pick, however I always measure the center piece and then cut my dp to fit. so for this punch I did cut my PINK heart Design Paper at 4" x 4". Next I cut another white card stock at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" and then a piece of the blue ' ish colored card stock at 3" x 3" to fit behind the white top frame. All layers were sewn with the sewing machine and pink thread.
My image was stamped in memento black ink, and then colored with copics. I colored the boot in E37, and then used E29 for the laces. for the flowers I used -RV11,RV34,BG000,B00, & V09 is the  violet. I then added some Eucalyptus colored stickles, and some clear stickles to my image, & then fussy cut my boot and flowers. Lastly I added a vintage feather behind it, and popped it off the main top layer.
Bouquet of Love - I colored the words "Love for You" with Chromatix black pen, and then stamped on the top layer of my card.
Embellishments-Gems, flower brad, vintage ribbon, and a vintage feather
Supplies Used:
White and Blue card stock/Left over AC design Paper & Pebbles dp
Copics for coloring/Stickles for embellishing
Gems, Brad, Vintage Feather, Vintage Ribbon,sewing, Martha Stewart punch around the page
I absolutely LOVE this Victorian boot and coloring it was very easy. It reminds me more and more of spring, and I really cant wait for the flowers to bloom. I do have some tulip's that are coming up right now, and cant wait to see those. They are located in my front yard! Here in Utah, winter months are dull, except when the snow it on the ground, tree's and mountains. In California I was used to everything being green in the winters....heheheeh
