A Very Special Birthday Card

I have been wanting to post this card for over 3 weeks now, but I had to wait until I gave it to one of my BFF's. This card just came to me one day while I was sketching projects...I could hardly wait to make it. My girlfriend is a proud Texan, so....the hence the design elements...I used my Cricut to make the boot (Just Because Cards) and the blue bonnets (50 States). I altered the cuts a little to give them more dimension. For the boot I added the embossed panels and finger straps at the top. For the blue bonnets I used two layers of color...the bottom layer is the darkest blue while the top layer it three shades...blue, light blue and white. I was trying to make it look more like a real blue bonnet. The "howdy" is a Stampin' Up stamp. I made the window and it's frame with the Label Spellbinder. I love doing the lattice...flashbacks of kindergarten...over, under, over...The red dotted paper is Daisy D's. Finally, it would not be a card made by me if it didn't have it, I added the bling. I am very happy with the finished product...it actually looks better than the vision I had ;0)
