High Heels

This card began as an inspiration from Becky Kazana etsy shop. It is for a challenge I have only just found called Etsyinspired challenge. Becky has a piece of work with this same saying and I thought it would work perfectly with a digi freebie from a wonderful lady called Sylvie at Creative Mind of Sylvie. She has now started to sell her stamps, look out later for a card I am making with one of the purchased images.
The background paper is from my stash, not sure who it is by, the ribbon is SU. Flowers from stash and the image coloured with promarkers. I printed the gingham paper from a site I found on the internet. I've added some gems and sprinkled fine glitter on the flowers (although it doesn't show up too well).
I'm also entering the card into:-
Die cut Dreams challenge - gingham
Allsorts challenge-dressing up
OSAAT - touch of pink
Daring cardmakers-girlfriend/sister card
Sir Stampalot - bling
digital tuesday - sparkly
cute card thursday-text
I had today off, this is the only card I have made! However, I have coloured some images etc for other cards which may or may not follow! I had my walls filled with cavity foam today, because after living here for 14 years and thinking they were already filled I discovered they weren't! What I hadn't thought about is that the front of my house has cream stucco on the top level and now it looks as though birds have left their marks all over it LOL! So, that now means I have to get that repainted and to top it all the boiler won't light and BG can't come out until tomorrow - so at least I can craft tomorrow afternoon!
