Hello there. There is anew challenge starting at Cardz 4 Galz and the theme this time is ‘Shoes’. Here is my card:
This card was extremely difficult to photograph – there are so many shiny elements on it………….so I took quite a few to try and capture the different parts as good as I could make it:
I began by die-cutting the Tattered Lace ‘Platform Shoes‘ in shiny red card. These are the kind of shoes I loved to wear – very high, huge platform, and lacy. Unfortunately – age and bunions and knees and hips etc have made wearing these kinds of shoes quite uncomfortable – but I still keep them just in case!
I took a piece of Yupo paper and some alcohol inks to try and create a dramatic background, and a piece of black card which had some shine and glimmer to it, and adhered as you see.
The sentiment is from Jan’s Digi’s and comes with a set of images with a ballerina and ballet slippers – but I thought it suited this card just as well. I played with the sentiment size a little, printed it onto white copy paper, stuck it onto a piece of card, them used a Sue Wilson die set to die cut then ‘deboss’ around the sentiment.
The sentiment panel was looking a little plain, so I used the Tattered Lace ‘A Little Bit Ditsy‘ die with some red and black card for a little more interest.
That same day I made this card, I received a Stampin Up delivery which included the sequins in red and black and clear – so I used a few of those flower sequins around and about – one must know how to stop sometimes, doesn’t one? 🙂
I hope you can come and join us this time. I am sure there are some stamps and dies out there which would be suitable – I look forward to seeing your creations in our gallery. xx

Beautiful card, Lynda!! Love those shoes! I was never able to wear this kind of shoe so maybe I should have the die cut at least. LOL The yupo paper was a great background. Have a great rest of your week!
