And yes, if your wondering these boots were made for walking!!  Here is a little song to go along with them!

Meet our Guest Design Team Member this week ...SUNGHEE

Hello there! My name is Sunghee. I’m a stay-at-home mom living near Washington DC with a husband, a five-year old son, and a two-year old daughter. I’m so grateful to have my own crafting room where I could be as messy as I want to be. Not that other part of the house is neat, but I am thankful to have a designated area where I can spread multiple crafting projects at once and not worry about cleaning up at the end of the day.  I love everything cute and crafty. Currently, I enjoy photography, scrapbooking (both traditional, and digital), and paper crafting. Thank you so much for having me as a guest designer this week! What an honor!

Here's her card...

Inspiration: Shoe itself. She printed the photo on the back of the cardstock, and cut it. She wanted to use the monotone color like the photo. One flower (forget me not) accent with a sentiment, “Miss Shoe”.

We're so glad Sunghee joined us this week!!!:)

Now lets see what the team did this week:
She was inspired by the regal colours and the textures on the flower.
She took her inspiration from the colours of the boot and incorporated them into her card and the large flower inspired her to cut out the scalloped circles.
She was also inspired by the flower, making this one from a tutorial on the web.  She was waiting to use it on something special and it fits this card just perfectly!
She loved how sleek and modern the boot is, so she tried to mimic that in her card.  She used a cluster of mulberry paper flowers, a simple sentiment and rounded the corners of the card to act like the rounded toe of the boot.

She drew her inspiration on color, the roundness in the toe and the flower.  She rounded only her top corner and then glimmermisted her prima flower to mimic the flower on the boot.  She used pattern paper that matched the flower on the boot also.

I drew my inspiration from the gorgeous colours and the textured flower by using this canvas prima flower as the focal point on my card, just as the flower is the focal point on the boots.
We hope you'll join us this week in creating a card using the boot image as your inspiration. Have your card posted here by Saturday August 28th at 8PM EST. Then winners will be posted here on Sunday the 29th. If you are the lucky winner - you will receive a Guest DT spot with the card team for the week of September 5th and a 15% off your next order in the LCOM store.
