American Heart Sketch Challenge #15

I can hardly believe that I am doing challenge 15 for Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge already.  It seems like I just started as DT on this site last week.  The submissions are growing by the week, but there is still a long way to go.  So, if you are reading this before you look at the site, head on over there and join us.

The sketch is easy:
My card:

I  had originally thought I would just do a sentiment as the focal image.  As I was looking for paper for the background, I found this with the shoe pattern.  Then I remembered I had an image from DS4J by Jen Lee that was a square with the four shoes.  I printed and cut it out on my Cameo and colored the image with Spica pens.  The pens give the image a little bit of a shine.  The sketch shows stitching around the image, but I decided to put it around the background.  It is real stitching.  I still have a ways to go to perfect it, but the only way that is going to happen is to do it more often.


  1. Beautiful card thanks for sharing!!!

  2. My first thought is someone has a shoe addiction. But this is a fabulously fun card.

  3. I love this card, I love the shoes and bags!
