Shoes are a girls best friend!

   Our challenge this fortnight at Crafty Cardmakers and More has the theme dots.
   I matted and layered some spotty paper I had in my stash onto pink core'dinations cardstock and white card.
   I then made a decorative border for the right hand side of the card. I wanted to reverse the colours, having blue spots and a pink background so I cut a strip of pink core' dinations cardstock using a Spellbinders triple scallop die and a classic decorative inserts 6 die and matted it onto some blue core'dinations cardstock. I then wrapped some satin ribbon round the edge of this before attaching it to the card.
   The image is from a Tatty Twinkles stamp set called shoes and I coloured it using Promarkers. I then matted it onto pink core'dinations cardstock and attached it to the card. The sentiment is from the same set of stamps and this I matted onto blue core'dinations cardstock.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Alphabet - E is for eye-catching edges
