365 Cards Day 201

My wonderful friend Sarn sent me a card a while ago and it had some stamped images of a new set of shoes she'd had. (Thankyou VERY much sweetheart xxx)

They are bootiful and I have used them to make this card for Day 201's challenge at 365 Cards to include shoes on your card.

Now I have to admit, I can see the beauty in shoes but do not own many pairs like some people I know. The shoes I wore at my wedding are very pretty with embroidered flowers but I don't have a 'fetish' for them like lots of ladies do. I do however think the shoes in the stamped images are a bit gorgeous :)

I selected my papers 1st, (thanks for the tip Lisa) they are freebies from one of the British cardmaking magazines. I then coloured the shoes to match using my Promarkers. I added a little gem to the centre of the bow on the shoes 'cos you've got to have a bit of bling on posh shoes.

The flowers are Primas, I coloured the middle one in with a Promarker a I didn't have one the right colour and I remembered my friend Lisa telling me she colours hers in now to match.

The phrase was also a stamped image and I edges it with one of the pens too. I always wondered what to do with the flat end of a Promarker. I'm learning how to use them more. I think they will become my new obsession and I'll want to buy them all..... mooo ha ha ha (insert evil laugh !)

I have another couple of cards I made on World Card Making Day but I can't show them yet as they are for DT work on Crafty Cardmakers. One will be revealed tomorrow and I have been REALLY organised and made the one for the next challenge in a fortnight. I am not usually this organised......Wonders will never cease !!!
