TLT Flower Challenge

Hello friends; how are you?  It's time for another TLT challenge - we're back this week and we are focusing on FLOWERS. It can be flowers of any sort - flowers in your DP, flowers in your image, flowers you make, flowers you bought - whatever, just add a flower here and there and you're good to play along!

As you know, I am passionate about Queenie-poo's Shoes 'n Bags stamps, you can see all the various stamps HERE.  In fact, if you'd like to know HOW much I like them you can see other cards I made with stamps from this series:

Birthday Backpack
Hey Dude
Beach Babe
Orange Backpack
Sexy!
Summer Flip Flops

AND these images were just released at the end of April - HA, I use them quite often wouldn't you agree? So once again I used one of these images and paper pieced the shoes AND the backpack.  The layout is Sweet Sunday Sketch #134.

Now I will be the first to admit, I'm not thrilled with this card - I think it's just too, too, too busy!  Love all the papers, but it's just too much.  :(

I added some zig zag and straight stitching, some ink distressing, a couple die cut flowers and buttons. And you can't see from the pictures, but the "soles" of the shoes are all sparkly, created with a clear Spica glitter pen.

Hope you'll check out the challenge and then join the fun!

... I would love some funky shoes like these...so would my girls! ...

Hugs, ~M.
