Fabulous friend :)

Hello I hope you all had a good weekend - we took the boys on a long walk, climbed some trees, picked some wild flowers (sneezed alot !) and enjoyed a barbecue with family.

This morning while Aidan was at nursery and Issac at school I should have been ironing (!) but instead I made this card using the amazing sketch over at retro sketches as my inspiration :)
As soon as I saw this sketch I knew that I wanted to the back shape to be a cut out piece and that diagonal striped DP would show that off best so off I went, scouring through my scraps, and found this paper which was just big enough :)

The red accent was a no brainer as I love this colour combo and this pink petticoat image & sentiment just seemed perfect to top it all off ! It's my friends birthday soon and she LOVES shoes (of course !) so this card is just for her.

Hope you like it - I am def filing this sketch to use again- and again !

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Card & scrap - Use bling

((hugs)) Suzie xoxo

I hope the recipient of your card is as FABULOUS as it is! (grammatically awkward, but you know what I mean). The black and white and red with those funky shoes and the big satin ribbon is just eye-catching. Wow.
