The Right Shoes

A good friend of mine has a birthday coming up.  She is super glamorous, gorgeous and sophisticated, and is into shoes--very high heeled shoes.  We are spending her birthday together getting pampered at the spa at La Costa next week, and I made her this card:

Here is a peek at the inside:

This was a fun card to make, because I pulled stuff from all over my craft room.  Also, because I wasn't playing along with any challenges, I had to think of everything myself(!).

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  CSS Just My Style, PTI Green Thumb, Botanical Silhouettes & Christmas Labels, IO Houndstooth CAC
Paper:  PTI White, True Black & Kraft, SU Real Red
Other:  PTI Dies:  Mat Stack #1, XL Rickrack, Christmas Labels, CSS Just My Style Die, SU Houndstooth Embossing Folder

Thanks for Visiting

  10. That is the cutest sentiment, could have been made for my sister. Shoes are her thing too. I love that houndstooth embossing folder and you cracked me up when you said you had to think it all up yourself! I haven't done that myself in quite a while since I discovered all the sketch challenges.
