A Little Girly Flair

 
     Today I have a bit of a feminine card to share with you.  I found these painted shoe embellishments in my stash, and decided it was time for them to be used.  Thought they were so cute.  There was this great sentiment in the Unity February KOM, and it just clicked!

     I created my background with re-inkers on watercolor paper.  A strip of brightly colored designer scrap was added down the side, and under my sentiment.  For added interest, I used Prima Got Flowers minis and sticky back pearls for the centers.

I will be entering this for:

Friends with Flair:  Use Unity Stamps

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:  Special Lady/Girly

Mod Squad Challenge:  Create a background

     We ended the day with about 10 inches of snow.  There is a warm up on the way, for next week.  I hope to get back to more regular work hours.  Enjoy your weekend!

For some reason, I can not get my other two challenge to link up.... anyone having trouble like this?  I will keep trying.

Your background is amazing and I love the striped paper you used here also. Those shoes are fun little embellishments to use on a card. Hope the warming comes soon for you and gets rid of all your snow. I can't wait for Wednesday as it is suppose to hit 50°.

I had company all weekend so didn't get to stop by sooner to say how much I love this, Mary Anne! That background is just great and those shoes are so fun. I love shoe stamps! My feet are mainly in flip flops or sneakers so I get my high heel fix on paper! Hope you had a great weekend and thank you for always leaving such sweet comments when you visit my blog! xx Donna K
