High Heel Shape Card

This card was made for the Cricut Cardz Challenge and The Cuttlebug Challenges.

Cricut Cardz Challenge: Shoes
Cuttlebug Challenges: Paint

I love shoes although I don't own too many of them - just enough ;). But I was so excited to see this challenge. I knew I wanted to play with the shoe off Summer in Paris Cartridge™. I simply welded it with the Gypsy™, cut it out, added the black bow, and then.... added nail polish. Yes, you read right, nail polish. I was worried because we don't have any paint in our house and the Cuttlebug Challenges asked for paint. Then I realized that I did - but it wasn't in the form that I think they were expecting. None the less, here is my creation! I plan on writing on the inside, "Happy birthday to a very stylish girl". If you've ever watched Breakfast at Tiffany's, the girl that is with Paul Varjak - his "decorator" calls herself a "very stylish girl" in this wonderfully swag voice.

The envelope is from Wild Card Cartridge™

Beautiful! The shoe is exquisite, and I think nail polish is the most appropriate form of paint for your feminine card. Thank you for joining in our paint challenge at Cuttlebug Challenges.
