Patricia's shoes

Happy Sunday (as the French say lol)

I am now, hopefully, home however I refuse to do what I normally do and write a post at gone midnight therefore this is a scheduled post written whilst still in the U.K.

Todays card was made before I left for Holiday and, as the weird title suggests is based on Patricia's shoes!  Now before I get a slew of comments I have not been peeking in Mrs P's wardrobe neither do I have a strange liking for women's shoes!  A couple of weeks ago Patricia from Summerhouse crafts posted this card.  This was based on a pair of shoes she had.  I really liked the card, the design and the colours and decided to take this as inspiration to create my own version.  Hence today's card!

This is a simple colour palette of blue and white.  The background is embossed and a strip of matching ribbon simply tied around it.  The flowers are cut in blue and white and alternated to create two toned flowers.

A simple sentiment and foliage complete the panel which is attached to a gatefold card.

Hopefully more later when I have woken up, maybe using some of my new stash!
