Think of the song!

The recipe from Cooking it up with Katie this week consists of 3 papers, something clear and a song.
Can you guess what came to mind?
This challenge is sponsored by Whimsy stamps and this fabulous image by Mel Jenkins was one of her Freebies!! I coloured it with Copics and then added 3D Gloss Finish to add a little shine (that's the clear bit).
The three papers are from Cuddly Buddly's Portfolio range in brown.
I added the knot as I thought it looked a little Western-ish. It's a great knot to add to cards as it lies flat. You can find a tutorial I did on how to make it here.
The sentiment was made on the computer.
Well.... have you thought of the song?
It's going to date me I'm afraid as it's a really old one... 'I've got spurs that jingle, jangle, jingle'.
It was sung by Tex Ritter I don't know if it was in a Western Film, but this is the chorus
I got spurs that jingle, jangle, jingle
As I go ridin' merrily along
And they sing, 'Away, too glad, you're single'
And that song ain't so very far from wrong
Karber Challenges - Card for a boy

  2. I'm old enough and I never got the title, I kept thinking 'these boots are made for walking' but knew it couldn't be with the spur!

  3. Fab card love the colours and the layout , thought the song might be i recall a gypsy woman , if not a patsy cline song , sheila x

  4. I am not sure what song you had in mind but I would say "These boots were ment for walkin....." Nancy Sinatra - around 1966!!!
    Ha, ha am I right???
