Double D - If the Shoe Fits

Hello Dear Friends!
It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
I'm hosting today and as you can see by my blog title ... the theme is 
If The Shoe Fits

I recently received this precious image from Elisabeth Bell called 'Summer Buttercup' and
knowing I had these fabulous boots in my stash, by Cheery Lynn Designs 'Arizona Cowboy' (#B517),  I immediately thought they would work perfectly together.
 Here is the fun mood board I have created to inspire you ...

 Of course, you can see immediately where I drew my inspiration!  LOL
 My background paper is from a 6x6 Paper House pad called 'Country Girl'.  I simply fussy cut around the lower corner flower and slid my hand colored image in behind to give the overlaid effect.  I've used Spectrum Noir alcohol markers for my coloring.  

My sentiment die is from Impression Obsession called 'Greeting Set' and I have only used the word Happy to help balance the design.  

 Impression Obsession - Dies - Greeting Set
 I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun!
Here's what I have up for grabs to one lucky random draw winner.
What a fun prize!  
So, come play along using our theme and YOU might be our random winner!!
  Hope to see you there!
As always . . .
