My first Craft Room challenge DT card 'Anything goes'

Good morning, I am so excited to be bringing you my first DT card for Craft Room Challenge.  Don't forget you can use any products you like as long as you follow the theme for the 2 weeks of the challenge.  The Craft room online shop stocks all of your products and I believe the stamp set I have used for this challenge is available in the store(unless she has sold out since I last looked! )

This is a tri fold card, I used 2 square cards and fixed them together to make this.

I have used Umount's stamp set 'If the shoe fits' for most of this card, the flowers are yet again my unknown stamp!

Lots of pictures with this one so you can see it all!!

The shoe has been stamped and coloured with pro markers, then I have used glossy accents on the top.
I have layered it onto 2 Nellie Snellen die cut shapes which have been liquid pearled.  The sentiment is from the set.  I have used a flourish die on plain red card, inked with stazon( black) then versa mark(clear) To create the backing paper.  lace and ribbon have been used to create a boarder down one side and a fiskars boarder stamp has been used on the other. 

IA swirls embossing folder hasbeen used to make the backing for this side, some organza red and gold ribbon for the boarder and my unknown flower and pucnhed leaves as decoration.

This side I have left mostly plain for the writing on, i have just layered white paper onto black and red and wrapped cross stitch threa around the corners.

Another swirls backing with the shoes and hat box stamped onto red card with black stazon.  I have wrapped red cross stitch thread and tied a bow for a boarder on this side.

The backing card has been made by stamping the smaller shoes in a pattern with black stazon.  The sentiment is from the set and has been stamped onto a nellie snellen die cut, which has been inked with red and black.

Ans finally, another shoe treated the same way as the first, I have used the same fiskars boarder punch down the side and black gems in the scallops.  The swirl embossing this time is on black card.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges pearls lace and elegance Die cut/home made backingpaper/ sparkle and bling

thanks for stopping by
