Bellariffic Friday - Metal

Metal?  Seriously?!  I was going to pass on this challenge until I remembered I had these little metal sentiments from Dollarama that I've had for ages and never used - do you have things like that too?  You see them at Dollarama and think "oh, those would be great for a card" and then tuck them away in a drawer and forget about them.

This card is for Christal and those of you who know Christal KNOW that she loves purple and she is a shoe-a-holic (in fact the sign on her desk says so!).  Yes, Christal loves her shoes and her boots and she has more than a few pairs!  Imeldabella was the perfect image and I loved that I could personalize the shoe boxes with two of her favourite stores.  I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with copics. 

I paper pieced the pants and added several coats of clear glaze pen to the top. The pattern paper is Basic Grey Oh Baby Girl, Lilly.  The Simply Scallops Die-namic is from MFT and the little shoe charm was given to me from Karen
Now if you look veeeeery closely you will see that I paper pieced those boots - yes, I did!  Each one of them!  In retrospect, I wished I hadn't sewn on the card but I know Christal will appreciate my attempt :)

Happy Birthday Christal!!

I know exactly how you feel...metal...haven't used it in forever and yet have a ton of things laying around I bought back in the day. Your card reminds me that I have some of these somewhere too! Love the little shoe charm to go with your theme. Can I say that this is a "charming" card? Bawah Enjoy your weekend!
