It's all about the shoes!

I have a bestie friend whose birthday is next week and each year we go to DSW shoe shopping with all of her birthday coupons. She is a shoe fanatic! She is a heals fanatic! She'd wear heals to work out if it were....well not so frowned upon. She came home a few months ago from the store with this gorgeous pair of animal print heals and I thought they were adorable! It gave me the perfect idea for a birthday card :) and I'm really happy with how it turned out!!! It's just really simple, but so HER!

I used Forever Young cart for the shoes and Recollections Animal Kingdom paper pack. The bling on the shoes is actually from Oriental Trading Company. I also added some glossy accents to the sole and heals :) The purple paper was cut with my Fiskars border punch, stamped with an Inkadinkado stamp I got out of the Michaels dollar bin, using Studio G ink. I added some bakers twine and a button for a little more decoration. I also inked the edges of the card itself.

I'm able to enter this card into the Paper Playtime Challenge #45 which was to create a tall card and Birthday Sundaes Challenge #9 which was to create a birthday card and add at least 3 circles (hopefully my bling counts!). I'm also entering it in the Paper Sundaes Challenge #69 Happy Birthday Christine which is to make a birthday creation!

Lastly I added it to the Patches of Pink Thursday Link Up Party!
