A Shoe with Style

 I am on a roll today...this is my third post.  I wanted to make sure that I make some deadlines so I am posting more than usual.  Some of these had been pre-scheduled so that's why I  look so busy.

I had fun making a card for Runway Inspired Challenge  which uses fashion to inspire us to create a card.  This week's photo is a Shoe from Manolo Blahnik to use as inspiration.  I did the obvious for my card....I literally made a shoe with paper piecing and cork elements and pulled colors from the photo. I stamped the shoe on a Cork Pattern Paper from Fancy Pants Wonderful Day pad  with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and paper pieced with a pattern paper from Crate Paper DIY collection. I heat embossed the sentiment with Versamark ink and Red EP.  I assembled the card following the Tuesday Morning sketch shown below using a Black card base, a layer of Red CS, a layer of the pattern, and then the image matted with Black CS.  My embellies are Flowers of Cork cut with Heartfelt Creations Daisy Patch dies topped with Red Rhinestones. Stamps are from MFP You've Got Style set.

In my younger years this is definitely a shoe I would love to have worn.
I wonder if it is available in 51/2 narrow?
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa

I bet they DO come in that size - I have big ol' farmer feet, and it seems like the prettiest shoes are made for petite feet :) I love the cork - such fab texture! Thanks for coming to play with us at TMS again, Theresa!
