If the Shoe Fits

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Darlene is hosting this challenge with the theme of “If the Shoe Fits”. Yes, it is all about shoes this fortnight. I DD_Shoeslove shoes in real life as well as in card-making. Some  shoes can be so stylish and elegant but for other occasions you need a practical and comfortable pair. Just look at the Double D inspiration picture and pick your pair to join our challenge. The team created beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile.

I decided on an elegant pair of shoes for my vintage style card. The lovely vintage picture is from Graphic45 and matches the fashionable pair of shoes just perfectly. I layered the vintage picture on a delicate lace die cut background and then added the shoes with mirror tape for a bit of dimension. I finished off with a stamped sentiment, lace cord for the bows, pretty paper flowers and gemstone embellishments for the shoes. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

    I’ll admit I’m a shoe nut, but they have to be comfortable now, and it’s not easy to find good looking comfortable shoes. I manage, but the heels have been put to rest, sigh… I would have worn these back in the day. Love the vintage flair of your card, Amelia! Pretty flowers and trims, and I’m especially fond of the adornments on the shoes. Beautiful card!
