Step It Up!

Hello everyone! This will be a quick post today as the sun is shining brightly & I want to get out in my garden & do some work before the rains come again!  This card is for my daughter-in-laws birthday. Alison loves purses & shoes. Last year I made her a purse card so this time it is only right that she gets the shoes (or shoe) to go along with it. As you can see there is no DP here, just good old CS in red, black & white; I embossed the white with the swirls folder from Cuttlebug. The image is a freebie from coloring pages & is colored with my prismacolor pencils. The black pearls & shoe bling are from Recollections & the gingham ribbon is from my stash. Hope you like it!

I plan to enter this card in the following challenges:
Ruby's, white & 1 other color
Scrapbook Sisters.....anything goes                    
Tuesday Throwdown.....gingham (ribbon)          
Crafty Ribbon.....clean & simple                       
Willow Sketchie.....bold & bright
