I have to confess to being hooked on making these 'Marie' style shoes. This one was made for a blogging friend - she now has received it so it's safe to post it on here!
Papers are by K and Co, the lace, paper flowers, pearly heart button on the tag, ribbon and pearls are all from my stash. I popped a small bundle of ribbon and lace inside the shoe and tied it with an organza bow.

As it's been such a long time since I entered any challenges (at least a week!!LOL) - I'm submitting my shoe into a few challenges that are currently ongoing -
Sisterhood of Crafters - Recipe of ribbon/trim, designer papers and flowers
Fab n Funky Challenges - 'What'eva'!
Bunny Zoes Crafts - Vintage,
Southern Girls Challenge - Anything Goes
Gingersnap Creations Random Redhead Challenge - Go 3D
Anything Goes - Say it with Flowers
Tuesday Taggers - Books - (and mine is 'Marie Antionette -The Journey' by Antonia Fraser (which is a biography which makes you re-think what history says about Marie Antionette)
Dezinaworld - Gold and Lace
