Happy 'Boot' Day Patchwork

Happy Tuesday,

Did you go vote today?  I hope you exercised your Constitutional Right!  It was a rainy, stormy day here in North Texas.  I am so thankful for the rain.  Thank you Lord for providing for us.

My sister came by to help me with a ride to the market.  We had a good time gathering our groceries and visiting with people at the store.  My cupboard is now stocked up with soup and soup ingredients for the cooler weather.

I wanted to participate in a challenge that required a patchwork element for today and came up with this card with the aid of a sketch from Create with Connie & Mary (see below for sketch).

I CASE'd the patchwork element.  It was very easy to recreate and quick relaxing, much like real quilting.  Here are the details:

Stamp set:  Bootiful Occasions (Wood #131967, Clear #126597)
Paper:  Sahara Sand (#121043), Whisper White (#100730) and Moonlight DSP (#133701)
Ink:  Blackberry Bliss (#133642), Hello Honey (#133643) and Baked Brown Sugar (#131174)
Misc:  Hexagon punch (#130919), Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755), Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) and Rhinestones from stash

This card is entered in the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks - #218 - Anything Goes
Creative Knockouts - #61 - Patchwork Pretties
Create with Connie & Mary - CCMC327

Oh, I love using scraps for the Herringbone background technique. The boot is a fun image on top of it! Thanks for playing along with the sketch challenge this time on Create with Connie and Mary!
