Yippee - this one sold for USD 4 as well

Hi bloggers,

Hope you are keeping well and happy...

You may be fed up of this shoe card that I keep posting in with different shoes but it seems to be a HOT favourite and sells rather quickly. It sold for USD 4 - am so chuffed about that. This is the second card that I have ever priced for this much so far...but it makes me happy that my work is being well received.

By the way 22 out of 24 cards that Helen sent sold off! Thanks, Helen! Her blog is worth a peep for sure.

The doily stamp is from Paper Mania (I stamped it with Tim Holtz distress ink  - fired brick) 

The shoe stamp is from a set of Hero Arts clear stamps. I went over the outline with a Sakura nail pen in black and coloured it with my Marvy brush marker in red. The distressing has been done with the same fired brick distress ink.

Then, ran the rectangular piece of paper through my Cuttlebug.

I have made the flowers  with my Ek Success scalloped punch. The  tiny stems have been cut free hand.

The ribbon is from my stash.

The sprig have been punched from my Carla craft punch.

The sentiment is handwritten but not my own - I have copied it from the stamp as it would not fit if I stamped it directly on the scalloped flower nestie.

I am going to enter this for the following challenges;
http://alotarubberstamps.blogspot.com/ - red and white
http://bythecuteandgirly.blogspot.com/ - anything goes
http://emeraldfaeries.blogspot.com/ - anything goes

Thanks for visiting!

Hugs,

Monica

Good Job!! This is a fantastic card and once again worth every penny! If you knew how much commercially printed greeting cards sell for here in the US! OH! You wouldn't be surprised at all that people would pay $4 for a handmade card. I"m so, so thrilled for you!!! YEA!
