Cindy Haffner challenged the CCEE Stampers to make a circle-shaped card and include stitching.  I used my circle and lacey circle Nestabilities for my card.  I hand stitched the black and white baker's twine on the half circle sentiment panel.

I colored the Dotted High Heel (by Rubbernecker) with Copic markers and added pink gemstones to the dots on the shoe strap. The entire sentiment reads "If the shoe fits....buy it in every color."  If you'd like to play along in our challenge and see the cards Joanne, Shirley, Tosha, Frances, and Cindy made, visit our CCEE Stampers blog!

My next card is one I created for Dolce Stamps and Cards using this koi fish image by Local King Rubber Stamps.

After I heat embossed the koi fish (one with Winter Wonderland white and one in Sapphire
embossing powders), I sponged Brocade Blue ink over the fish.  I hand cut the fish and popped
them up on dimensionals.  You can find the rest of the card details on the Dolce Blog here.

both are fabulous, Charlene, but that shoe one just totally grabs my attention....loving the color combo....the layout (I struggle so with circle cards), and...well....that shoe is a pure feminine delight (though I could never walk on it in my 'old' age....wonderfully fun, Bertie
