I was stumped at first!! I'm a pretty "unfancy" person and I don't shop so seeing the purses (and the prices) I almost couldn't think! Then I came upon this pair of shoes and thought, hey I think I can do something with that, they look a bit like western boots and spurs.
I stamped the Stampendous leather tooled design with silver on black, I tried white but I like the silver better. I have some old studs for garments (5 prong) that was just the right size for a decorative concho and the silver sticker nail heads (3 mm) were just right for my decorative studs. I have always loved this horse trio so I stamped it with VersaFine since I was not going to color it. The chain is a die from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I showed this to my hubby and he loved it so I hope you do too!
The card size is a bit different for me, 6" X 4 3/8"...it was going to be 7" but I trimmed off the bottom.
A few people ask if I really don't shop and the answer is I really don't clothes shop...I spend all my "miscellaneous" money on craft stuff!! LOL! Plus, we don't have ANY clothing stores in Oakhurst. Closest store is about 45-50 miles away down the hill in the city. I occasionally buy something on-line...reasonable! Not much of a big spender.
Thanks for looking!

Wow! This is beautiful and so creative, Robin. I love the horses and the stamping on the bottom is perfect for this card. I like the silver and all your hardware/stickers and die. My hubby just came through the room and said, "WOW, that's pretty."
Did you REALLY say you don't shop???? Your hubby must love that.:)

You don't shop? (and here I was thinking we were soul sisters!-LOL) Shopper or not, this card is marvelously designed and so naturally rich! I definitely can see the 'boots and spurs' feel you were looking for in your design and in the inspiration piece. P.S. I have a friend who loves riding horses - she would give her right arm for your amazing card (so let me know if it's on Etsy)! Going straight to my favs!

Those are definitely not a pair of shoes I would ever wear. I can admire them though. Your card is gorgeous Robin!! I love those horses. I'm glad you found something to inspire you, and I'm with you, I'm not much of a shopper and especially at those prices.

oh my goodness, Robin. You rocked the IC. I wondered about what inspired you from just the thumbnail, but wow...way to go. And those shoes...well I can admire them from this side of the computer. Great card.
