Goes together like a horse and carriage?????

This stamp from Just Inklined made me smile....and inspired by a Jak Heath design I have CASed it and made it into a card as soon as I could!
What a fab shoe as well dontcha think? Not that I could walk in anything with a heel as high as that now (am resigned to 'flatties' unfortunately!) but it's nice to remember when I COULD wear them!

I opted for a fairly simple layout with clean lines to show the image off to it's best and although very little colouring was required I did use several shades of grey promarkers on the ball and chain (LOL) and used Ivory and Blossom promarkers on the shoe. After colouring I used a liberal amount of Cotton Candy Stickles on the ribbon and glued a little pink pearl in the centre of the knot.

The embossing folder is by Indentz and my pink backing paper by K and Co.
This was another attempt at using an image 'outside the die' - think it's best to stick to simple ones until I perfect it! But am pleased with this one - not messy at all (not like the last one!).
I used a scalloped die to edge the oval one and a Martha Stewart punch for the bottom border.

I finished it all off with some pink and white spotty organza ribbon and of course a lock and key for our stilletto wearing woman to make sure her catch doesn't escape!
