Toot your own horn ....

....  I'm in really early with this week's CAS-ual Fridays - CFC72 challenge.  This week the Design Team want us to make a card based on our own Blog Header!!!  This sort of stumped me a bit as I don't have any images on my header - it's really graphic!!  However, I've combined the challenge with this week's CASology - CAS12 challenge to feature a shoe!!!  I know I don't have a shoe in my header, but as my Header is only words and colour - I think I can include just about anything as an image!!  This is what I came up with:


Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Santa Was Here! (Secret set); Woodware - Christmas Borders & Vertical Words
Inks: Versamark; Memento - Tuxedo Black; Distress - Mowed Lawn
Spellbinders: Mega Rectangles Lg (S4-142) #4
Accessories:  Cuttlebug EF - Snowflakes from Winter Wonderland (set of 6); Card from stash




So, from my Blog Header I've taken the following features - the colour, the rectangular layout and the embossed look of the lettering.  And in my card I've layered green beneath an embossed snowflake background onto which I'd previous stamped a vertical sentiment.  The shoe was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed.  I then die cut it and added colour to bring out the shape of the shoe and the pretty pattern of the Christmas Tree inside the shoe.  

That's all for today - I'd better do some house stuff!!! Boring, but important otherwise the dust devils land!!  See you soon.
