More cards for Japan Redcross

Hello bloggers,

I hope you all are well and happily crafting away...

I made this card two days ago. I wanted to stamp the sentiment which says "Kick off your heels and have fun" but there was no room left on the card... I have made cards in the past with this sentiment and they looked so full of fun.

The shoe stamp is from Hero Arts - I went over with Zeenya's nail pen over it and then I distressed the image with barn red.  The satin roses and ribbons are from my stash.
The black sprigs are from my Carla craft punch.
The swirly silver and black sticker is from Ek Success.
Embossing done with my Cuttle bug - the white paper has been distressed mildly with barn red as well.
The silver swirls on the left have been painted with fabric pop up glitter glue.
I am not very sure of this card - there is no focal point to it, really.

Off to make some more cards... just sent off 30 cards to sell to a sweet lady who lives in our building. Let us see how many she buys.

I am going to enter this card for the following: - sparkle and shine

Have fun and stay healthy and cheerful!

Hi Monica! Fabulous card! LOVE the high heel. I think your sentiment can EASILY go on the inside of your card and still have the same impact! Hugs!

Hi Monica. Oh my goodness, this is so gorgeous, and look at that fantastic shoe. Great colour combination again and the design with the swirls and glitter are just so perfect. Very classy my friend. Happy crafting.
Lots of love, Sandra xxx

Love that heels! what a fun card!

Sometime I would stamp the sentiment first then I did the embossing later.

And you know I like you hand writing.
