You make my heart dance

** 11/15/16 Top 3 at CCC Digi Creations! **
** 11/30/16 Winner at Pearly Sparkles! **
** 12/1/16 Best Technique Winner at Classic Design Team Open Challenge Blog! **

Hi everyone! Back with my third and final post today - hope you're not getting tired of me, lol! The November House of Cards challenge is going live this morning and I'm excited to share my DT inspiration project for Lots of Layers and/or Colors! OMGoodness, look at this inspiration photo! Love, love, love... hope you do as much as I do! ;)


I had THE BEST time putting this card together... layer after layer after layer. I mean I dug deep into my crafty stash and brought out a heap of goodies. All the paper elements are layered on charcoal brown cardstock and I used a couple stitched circle dies and added a double loop bow.


Anybody who knows me knows I have a severe shoe fetish and I fell instantly in love with this shoe die the moment I saw it. I knew this sparkly stiletto needed to be the center of attention - on top of all those layers. I added some punched butterflies and flowers, along with a few other cool elements to create the collage.


I decorated the inside with some scraps from the papers used on the front, and stamped an appropriate shoe-themed sentiment. :)


Happy to enter all these layers into the following challenges

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury Ivory and Charcoal Brown cardstock, Core'dinations orange Glitter Silk, papers and ephemera from Polly's Paper Studio Fall Harvest Creativity Kit
  • Stamps: Paper Pretties 'Ballerina Sophie' and 'Sassy Shoes' stamp sets
  • Ink: Ranger Walnut Stain distress ink, Ingvild Bolme Knotted Wood chalk ink
  • Dies/Punches: Tattered Lace High Heel Glam die, Memory Box Stitched Circle Layers dies
  • Accessories: Stampin' Up! Bitty Butterfly and Petite Petals punches, MISTI, Fiskars corner rounder, plaid ribbon scrap from stash, Dark Walnut Crystal Drops, Copper flat-back pearls, tiny black rhinestones, large gray gemstones

I hope you've found a little inspiration to play in our challenge this month! We'd love to see lots of layers on your creation... or use some of those yummy colors! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
Scrappy hugs,
Leslie
