Sunny boots

This is a card that turned out complely different to how it looked in my head. It is for the card sketch for this week on Splitcoast.
I knew that I wanted the boots in Cool Caribbean, but I imagined the flowers being much taller with more of them, but it didn't fit on the sketch. I cut the piece of white card to size before I did anything else and so the size of the piece of card dictated the stamping.
I didn't intend to do any cuttlebugging either, but the paper looked so flat and uninteresting, lol.
So details, sets used Papertrey Green Thumb and Paper Tray. Cuttlebug embossing folder - bloom dots, Cuttlebug ribbon slider, turquoise spotty ribbon from Jody's share. Colors - Cool Caribbean, So Saffron, Regal Rose and Certainly Celery. Stampin Up designer paper.
