Butterflies and Boots

Hello.  Welcome.  We had a few hours of summer today.  Hurrah.  But it didn't last!  Shame.  So I played with some Cheery Lynn dies.

I started by making a base card out of printed craft paper.  Then I masked the edges and used a brown promarker to colour the center panel

I used Cheery Lynn Old Barn Board, Barbed Wire, Arizona Cowboy and Mini Dimensional Butterflies dies, all cut from craft card.  The sentiment is a Unity stamp from Owl Pals set.

  6. Ohhhh...this cad would be such a hit with the line dancers that meet up three times a week to dance at our adult clubhouse at the lake,. Every now and again I wander over there to watch them...What a treat they are to see!
    Arthritis keeps me from dancing now, but i can still enjoy!
    Great card!
