Shoe In Friend

In this week's Splitcoast Stampers "Ways to Use It" challenge our hostess, Lisa (aka Shoe Girl) challenged us to use shoes on our cards. It took a bit of searching through my stamp index, but I finally found the perfect image. The sentiment even matched Lisa's title for the post announcing the challenge.

My last couple of cards where I tried new techniques didn't exactly turn out how I wanted, so for this one I went back to my "old school" stamping style: a stamped main image, a stamped background, minimal layers and a bit of ribbon to accessorize. The inspiration for the colors came from a recent trip to Target, where I saw pinks and grays together in the school supplies aisle. Really took me back to the preppy look from the 80s.

Since the background is splattered, the card fits this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge: "Splatter It", so I'll be sharing it there.
