Summer time shoe ....

.... The inspiration photo from the current Runway Inspired Challenge - RIC14 is the most elegant shoe.  Heels to die for - almost literally!!!  When I was younger I loved high heeled shoes, sadly now I'm older, they don't like me :)   I knew that I had the perfect image for my card - an elegant summer court shoe designed by Jak Heath.  As this is a summer shoe I'm also submitting the card to this week's Charisma Cardz - CC24 where the theme is summer.


Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Compact Sentiments II; Jak Heath - Help for Katie Set - digi image
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Spellbinders: Square Lg (S4-126) # 6; Square Sm (S4-128) # 6 & 7
Accessories:  Promarkers - Leaf Green, Pale Pink, Baby Pink, Magenta, Carmine; DP - My Mind's Eye - Quite Contrary (FOC with Cardmaking & Papercraft); Cardbase from stash

The graphic from Runway inspired Challenge:


I know some people might think this weird, but today would have been my sister's 50th birthday.  Tracey died last year and it just doesn't seem right that she's not here to celebrate her 50th, so I've made this card because I miss her.  Tracey loved to shop and while shoes were not her object of choice, she would have loved a pretty pair like this - but maybe with lower heels :))))  

That's all for today!

I am so glad you did a shoe, I wanted to, but didn't have a stamp or anything to make it work. Great card! Happy Birthday to your sister, just because they aren't here doesn't mean we can't celebrate!

Hi Deborah, I love your 'shoe' card, I am quite addicted shoes myself but tend to go for the card type now, not the real ones. I am sure that your sister would have loved this card it is stunning.
