Gruffies and Guest Challenge Blog - July 2016 - Anything goes or the option of "Summer"

Today it is time for me to show you another card for the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog.

 The topic for April 2016 is "anything goes with the option of "Summer".

As mentioned before there will be no sponsors for the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog in 2016.  Instead members of the Design Team will be offering prizes.

This month it is the turn of Vickie to sponsor the challenge.  She is offering the winner 3 Paper Studio embossing folders.  Now who wouldn't want to win that?

Today is a sad day for me as it is my last post as a member of the Gruffies and Guests Design Team.  It has been a wonderful Design Team to be part of since January 2014.  I wish you all the very best with the Design Team.  I will never forget my love of House Mouse, Gruffies and Happy Hoppers!!
Here is a card I have made for a male. I have use some of my Joanna Sheen decoupage and used this gorgeous boot image and decoupaged it up.

The backing papers I have used are from my stash.

I have finished the card off with some natural twine, flowers die-cut from brown parcel paper for a rustic feel and also to be suitable for a male, Nuvo pearls drops for some bling/shine for the centre of the flowers and a stamped sentiment.
