Fancy Shoe Christmas

This image is a digital stamp from Doodle Pantry called 'Fancy Shoe'. I coloured the shoe with Prismaclor markers and decorated the layout with Christmas paper, snowflakes and a 'be merry' sentiment.  I created this card for the Monday challenge at Bugaboo  which is  to create a Christmas card with a non traditional image: See here  for all the details!

The Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #25  is still open and will be till July 24th  so lots of time to enter;  the theme  is an easy one just use a Doodle Pantry image ( not just a sentiment).  Lots of changes for this months challenge rules so do read the post thoroughly if entering. July 1st was  also a new release day over at Doodle Pantry with some amazing new images, be sure to stop in   at  their New releases  to view them!
