A Cowgirl Double Challenge Card

I'm so used to making CAS cards that this card took for a very loooong time. But I wanted to use the sketch for this week's Mix it Up Monday challenge on StampTV.

And this is also for today's SCS Free 4 All Challenge: Two by Two - Do things in twos ... two of the same image, two bows, two buttons, two brads ... as long as there are two of the same thing somewhere on your creation.

So, I have two boots, each popped up at different heights. The main image is mounted on two different Nestabilities' styles. I have 2 rhinestones, one on each boot. I used to photo corner punches. And finally, I used two different patterns of designer paper.

The Gina K. tan leather BG mat is textured. I'm really disappointed it doesn't show on either of the photos. The "floor" that the boots are on is in SU's retired creamy caramel and is embossed with Cuttlebug's distressed stripes EF.
