Cowboy Boot Birthday!

My sister's family likes western themed stuff so I got the idea to make another shaped card.  (kind of like my guitar)  I got on line and looked for a pattern that I could print out and use.  I came across this cowboy boot pattern and thought it would be perfect.  I did have to straighten the left side so that the card would have a place for me to fold and still keep it together.  After I printed it out I cut out the boot and traced it onto my paper.  I had some self adhesive leather ribbon that worked perfect as the spur straps and the spur is a leather flower.  The metal pieces are upholstery tacks that I snapped the point off of.  I sponged some Scattered Straw distress ink around the edges and stamped happy birthday on the side strap.  Inside I used the Hey Pardner  phrase from Art Impressions and a cactus from Rubbernecker Stamps.
