Quirky Crafts Challenge - Kick Up Your Heels

I'm back again in a follow-up post  as Guest Designer for this fortnight's Quirky Crafts Challenge.  I was chosen after winning 3rd place in their May 10th Challenge.
The Cutting Cafe is sponsoring this fortnight's challenge - The Challenge is Quirky Shirts or Shoes - and the design team was sent some fun cut files to use.  For my follow up challenge project - I used the High Heeled Shoe cut file.  How fun is this elegant shoe!!  I did it up in some bright colored shimmer card stock from Papertrey Ink. (I'm afraid the pretty shimmer of it doesn't show up in my photos.)
I love the fun element of the bow strap (there are several different bow options in the cut file for the shoe).  I added an Idea-ology Gum Drop that I colored with Sail Boat Blue Adirondack Alcohol Ink to the center of the bow.
The files also come with a whole sheet of fun sentiments -  I loved the Kick Up Your Heels one I used on the front - and also this tongue-in-cheek one I  added on the inside.  I will be giving this card to a co-worker who loves high heels -  and always wears them -  she will LOVE this! (and totally agree with the sentiment!)
So, if you haven't already - please check out the Quirky Crafts Challenge - Shirts or Shoes and join in!  There's still one more week to play!
