Paper Smooches: 4 Color January Challenge

I was feeling another Paper Smooches moment ... you can understand that, right?  Another offering to the current 4 Color Challenge - hope they don't mind if I use black and grey as two of four colors - they are my favorites.

OH did you read the news?  Rain boots will have their own die in a few days!!!  YES!  Though I didn't have trouble fussy-cutting these shiny little numbers at all:

White, black, grey, and yellow!
Paper Smooches Frame 1 & Frame 1 Duo die Kaisercraft Shine Bright paper
Inside sentiment:  "We might as well step in it in style!"

I stamped two of the rain boots from Green Thumb, from the patterned paper, and two from white cardstock, layering them to make them more sturdy.  I then smooched them with VersaMark and gave them a great shine with heat-set clear embossing powder. 

Wish you were here to check out their shine ... trust me, or go take a close-up peek on my IG page #mfergu01  I'd love a visit, however, or wherever, you find me!

Oh my gosh Michele, you have me laughing totally out loud with this card. I mean, those sweet rain boots are so adorable but, that sentiment is just to die for laughing.
What a fabulous way to say this phrase, I think I will adopt it and say it instead of the "other" one, LOL!!
Thank you for the laugh, my dear, I really needed it right now because this is exactly what happened to me!!!!! My 75 gal. marine tank filter was acting up and was making a weird noise so, I had to disconnect it to find out what the heck was going on and it was not good, the pump gave out and I needed a new one. Lucky my daughter was coming home from work and I was able to ask her to get me another one, so indeed, COMPOSTE HAPPENS!!!!!
Fabulous card, sorry for the length of this comment, sheeesh!!

Really fun sentiment, and I love how you used your polka dots in opposing ways (does that sound right?) ~ I'll bet those shiny boots are fabulous IRL, too! Such a cute card, Michele!
