Theme Day Thursday - BLING

Today is
over at My Cricut Craft Room, and today's theme is

  Bling Bling Baby

As I was sitting in my craft room, trying to
think of an idea, I saw this

I bought this cute shoe plaque to hang in my craft room as it is the same colors as my room. 
 I used this shoe as my inspiration for my card today!! 
I knew I had the perfect paper to replicate this shoe!!

I usually make 5 x 7 cards, but I decided to make this card a standard A2 size. All the paper I used was from my scrap pile.  The background paper is Coordinations Whitewash cardstock in pink.  I embossed it using a Sizzix folder and then sanded it so the pink comes through. 
I also distressed the edges using my CTMH edge distresser. 
The shoe was cut from Forever Young. 
I used the pair of shoes from page 54, I just hid one of the shoes using my Gypsy. 
The shoe and all layers were cut at 4"
Here is a close up of the shoe.
What do you think, did I capture my inspiration??

For the label, I used Elegant Edges, the image was from page 67.  I manipulated it with my Gypsy to cut at 1.56" w x 3.3" h, and turned it on it's side.

The sentiment is from My Creative Times
"Classy & Fabulous" stamp set.
I added a little twine, some ribbon, and lots of bling!!

I sure hope you enjoyed my card today, and please make sure you step on over to My Cricut Craft Room to see what the rest of the wonderful design team has created today!!
