You're a shoe-in...Dynamic Duos #92

 Good morning, everyone. 
How I wish it was open-toe-shoe weather outside! Patience, I know.
In the meantime, we can celebrate the start of a new month, with a new "bold & cheery" challenge from the Dynamic Duos.
I used a Viva la Verve sketch for my card this week, along with some new Stampin' Up goodies from my friend, Hayley.
Here's the sketch:
 And here's the card:
I used some Verve ribbon, to match the Hollyhock and Indian Corn Blue papers from Close to My Heart. The new SU goodies include the stamp set and pinked edge framelit dies.
A closer look:
How's about that Manolo Blahnik shoe?
To dress it up, I did some paper-piecing and Copic-colouring, along with touches of silver gel pen, Wink of Stella and bling. 
 Strap on some cute shoes and wander over to the Dynamic Duos blog to see what the  talented team has done with these bold colours.

Hope to see your creation linked up this week! One of the best parts of the DT job is seeing and commenting on all the skill and ability out there.
Happy crafting,

  1. What a fun card! The coloring is wonderful and I love that used the same patterned paper as that one panel for the inside of the shoe. What a great touch!

  2. Wow...this is amazing! I would love a pair of those shoes too, just gorgeous!

  3. Oh how stylish, Caroline! Love those shoes with the matching bow on the shoe with the ribbon on the card! I bet you had fun making this one- I had fun just looking at it;)

  4. Love this Caroline!! The shoes (your coloring is fantastic!), the sentiment and all of the trimmings- so cute and feminine!!

  5. Wow Caroline, this is so cute. Love your stylish shoe and the sentiment. Your coloring is fabulous and the paper piecing on the shoe looks great.

  6. Can I just say that that darn shoe is soo adorable! You did a fab job coloring it, and adding sparkly accents to it . Just beautiful!

  7. Love this darling card! Paper piecing the shoe is amazing!

  8. So gorgeous! The coloring is just fabulous!

  9. Love this! I love that shoe, the coloring, the bling... and I was surprised that this is a SU! stamp, because I didn't recognize it, and I thought I knew the catalog like the back of my hand. :)

  10. I love the strategically plaice bling on the shoe and how the ribbon leads your eye to it. That paper piercing is beautiful. It must have been tedious to do, but well worth it,

  11. Great card - love how vibrant the colours are and you did a great job of colouring the shoe and that little bit of paper piecing somehow just makes it magic!
