San's Card

Creative Team Card for Doodle Pantry March 5th Release  - Fancy Shoe

My sister was up visiting me from Calgary when the release came out to the DT and I was distracted from our visiting:)  San, this one's for you!

This is my first Creative Team card for Doodle Pantry and Laurie Wilson is the very talented digital image creator.  The image is an  extremely lovey 'fancy shoe' and it was super to work with.  Is it not a beautiful shoe?  Ah those must of been elegant times to have such footwear:) 
I stamped a fine lace SU background stamp  to give a hint of texture to the background paper.  I handmade the flowers and punched out the leaves from Martha Stewart punches.  The sentiment  comes with the "Fancy Shoe' digital set  (along with many more).  Added a ribbon and some pearls and it was done. I  used   pinkish, peachy and coral type paper and markers to give it a spring type feel as both my sister and I have had it with this winter :) 
The shoe must be the star so it is a very simple card and I am pleased with how it turned out !

Along with the new release is a  challenge at Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge. The only requirement for this challenge is to use a Doodle Pantry image, but just for playing along you will receive a free stamp set called Iris.
