For a special lady

Evening Folks
Hope you are all well this evening.  Well after a super sunny day yesterday the weather was a bit disappointing today. Very grey and overcast all day. Still, I suppose we are still only in March so can't expect too much.  At least there was no rain.  Had the usual Monday morning blues this morning and really didn't want to get up for work lol.  Still, needs must, my crafting habit won't pay for itself lol.
Today's card has been made for a friend whose birthday is at the weekend.  She is such a lovely bubbly person and likes anything bright and girly.

Went for something a bit different today and didn't use a stamped image.  Instead I used an image of a shoe that had been printed onto acetate.  I then glued glitter onto the back of the acetate.  As long as you use clear drying glue then when the glue dries you just see the lovely glitter.  Looks really effective.  The acetate image is one I picked up at a craft show.  The company is Glitter Greetings and they do some fab images on acetate.  You can also buy the glitter and glue from there too.
The background paper is from my scraps box so not sure now where I got it from originally.  Used silver mirror card for the matting and layering.  Finishing touches such as the ribbon and bow, feather and gems added to the girly feel.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Paper Sundaes - Feminine Flair
Love to Create - About the ladies
Pan Pastel - Girly/Mothers Day
Simon Says - Mothers Day or Special Girl

Thanks for popping by and hope to see you again soon.  Thanks to all my followers for your continuing support and encouragement.

Love this girly card Mags oh to be able to wear shoes like that again!! Thanks for your lovely comments Mags, in answer to your question I do use a blending solution which is called Sansodor. I got it on line can't remember where but if you Google it you'll find somewhere. As I am new to using them I have watched a few tutorials on You Tube which are really helpful. Hugs Susan x
