Boots for Wet Weather....and wow do we have that!

This card is oh, so appropriate for us here in the midwest!  It has snowed and been really cold, but we have a huge weather shift coming with warm weather and rain!  It's going to be a mess here!

However, this card is really a get well card for a couple who were in an accident this past weekend.  They are ok, but suffering from broken bones and lots of bruises.  So, the boots are sort of a coincidence!

 Heart 2 Heart has challenged us this "NO"vember by telling us things we cannot use!  First it was no pattern paper.  Next no stamping, then no ink and now no embellishments!  Yee gads, this is making me crazy!  I have yet to do my project with no ink.........I'm just not sure I can do that.  I LOVE inking everything!

This card has NO embellishments.  That was hard, but I did it!  I just kept thinking, 'Ooooh, maybe a button on those boots,' or 'hmm......I'd like some ribbon across there!'  Ah, but I resisted and stuck with the plan.

I used four card stocks:  Daisy White, Hollyhock, Olive, and Smokey Plum.  The latter three are the colors over at Color My Heart this week.
The card itself is cut from the newest CTMH Cricut Cartridge, Artfully Sent.  I've had it for awhile, but I haven't played with it too much.  Since I couldn't use embellishments for my entertainment, I decided to do a pop-up card!

I sized up the boots and cut two of them in white.  I stamped the large boots (on the front of the card) with the CTMH Whooo's Your Valentine stamp (retired) with 2nd generation Smokey Plum.  The "HELLO" is from the Just to Say... set and is heat embossed with white powder.

For the inside, I cut the boots in all four colors to use the flowers; I adhered them and went over some of the white petals with a white pen just to give them some shine.  I added stripes to the boots for fun.  Nobody likes plain boots, right?

This card is off to these challenges:

Heart 2 Heart - No embellishments
Color My Heart - Smokey Plum, Hollyhock, and Olive
Bitten by the Bug 2 - Anything Goes
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes with optional Hello
