I Felt the Inspiration

These adorable felt baby shoes from Martha Stewart Magazine were Kristina Werner's color challenge inspiration for us today. Aren't they just adorable?! You can see her challenge here.

And this is the card I created. I immediately thought of this cute little baby girl shoe stamp I had.
I used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder for the blue panel and a Martha Stewart lacy punch for the edging. I colored the shoes with my Prismacolor markers and mounted them with foam dimensionals.
I wrapped a piece of the Martha Stewart ribbon around the panel then cut 4 small pieces and tied a knot in the middle of them around the ribbon on the panel. Then I cut the edges at an angle. I added little sticky pearls to the shoes and around the sentiment.
The inside sentiment says "welcome little one".

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hi Julia, I just love this card. I especially like how you did the lacy edging over the Swiss Dots. It's a great effect. Can't wait for your class next Sunday! See you then!
