Paper Pieced Boot

Happy Monday everyone- I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

I wanted to pop in today and share a Christmas card that I made with this adorable "Puss in Boot" image from Lili of the Valley
I used a combination of Copics and Spectrum noirs to color the image and then paper pieced the boot... the papers are from Echo Park- the Season's Greetings collection. The sentiment is from Hero Arts, I used the CB D'vine Swirl folder for the embossing and Vintage Photo ink for the distressing. I cut the poinsettia out with a Spellbinder die, added some sparkle with the clear Wink of Stella pen and a few red gems and it's done!
Yay! Another Christmas card finished!

That's all for now... thanks so much for stopping by!
