I used paper from the 6x6 Bo Bunny stack, Ambrosia. I cut these fun shoes from the PAISLEY cartridge. I used a Cuttlebug folder to emboss the shoes. After embossing, I did a little inking with a purple, Colorbox ink pad. The flowers are made with Prima petals and a cut from the PAISLEY cartridge. They are attached to the shoes with little maroon brads. The flowers also have been glittered with teal and yellow glitter.
I added four little buttons to the card and tied them with DMC embroidery thread.
I have such a huge collection of embroidery thread that I love and find so many uses for. When I was in elementary school, my daddy's mother, Nanny, taught me to embroidery. I started with linen that had stamped images printed on them and would cross stitch the image. I still have one of those hanging in a bedroom. After the cross stitch, I started doing all kinds of embroidery, counted cross stitch, hardanger, crewel, needlepoint, smocking and the list goes on. I just happened to be one those people who always has to be doing something with their hands. So needless to say, I have a stash of all kinds of thread, and yarn.
I felt like the card needed a little something other than the shoes so I added a border cut with an EK punch and then added a bright yellow ribbon and bow.
I just think that the sentiment is more than perfect for this card. It os from K Andrew Designs stamp set "Fashionable Friends". I cut the sentiment label out with a Spellbinder label #20 and then inked it with yellow and orange Colorbox ink.
Here is the inside of the card.
This was such a fun card to make. I always enjoy using the Paisley cartridge,and these bright colors. And using these bright colors was just so much fun!
