Cinderella Shoes

     Cinderella clearly knew the value of a good pair of slippers and I submit for consideration that in itself is reason enough to go shopping for a new pair of shoes!  This delightful image from SheepSki Designs inspired me.  For their FB challenge, they want us to use two colors so I chose pink and silver.

     This one is pretty simple because I wanted the shoe to be the main focus.  I colored it with ProMarkers and cut the image with a rectangle die (Spellbinders), then punched the corners for a bit of  visual interest (Fiskars.)

     I put the image onto an embossed card front, added the hand-cut sentiment, and tied that outrageous triple bow with the help of my bow maker.  Almost as an afterthought, I decided to add the silver pearls and that really dressed up the shoe.  Now I know Cinderella would love this pair!  :-D

Cinderella would LOVE this shoe and it really is a beauty - but I'd have to have the ambulance on stand-by if I wore them now. Too used to wearing sneakers and flip flops the last few years. LOL!
I love your card though and all the pink is so pretty. A perfect bow too! The silver pearls dressed up the shoe just right.
