Boots 2 Stamps Inspiration Challenge #1 Reveal

Before I post this week's challenge, I want to share with you the card I made for last week's challenge, which you can see here. The challenge is starting off slowly, but as long as there are people that want to play along, I'm happy to continue it! Here's my card for B2S01:

I used the colors in the challenge to make my card, and I wanted to play around with the fabulous new stamp set, Vintage Vogue, and the new Scallop Trim border punch that I earned FOR FREE by spending $50 on SU! merchandise this month. I love Sale-a-Bration, because every $50 you spend gets you 1 free item from the SAB brochure!!

Those of you who are a Stampin' Addict, like me, may recognize that this LO was inspired by Sketch #39 over on the Stampin' Addicts website. You can see the sketch here. I did turn the card/sketch on it's side. It was a fun sketch to use as a starting point. You should check it out!

Thank you so much to those of you that played along with me this week. I hope that you will stay tuned for my week #2 B2S Inspiration Challenge!!! I will post it shortly. :)
