You can deal with anything if you have the right shoes!

Hi ya!

I hope everyone is off to a fabulous start to your weekend!

I have a quick fun share today primarily inspired by Jay Gee's Inspiration photo! (Which you will find below)
I started with an aqua card base and pieced together my embossed distressed striped white panel to my yellow checked, gingham patterned paper. I just love gingham. I always have....I think I finally retired my well worn yellow checked, gingham dress from Express I have had for ages. I mean the label was an antique not to mention you know it's old because I am thinking yellow gingham is not something you see in there these days.  *sigh*...back to the card! 
A paper doily was added along with three hand-made paper tissue roses adorned with some beautiful pearls. A die-cut tag was made from some fabulous patterned paper by My Mind's Eye layering on another die-cut, a stamped ticket and one fab paper pieced pump which comes from Wilson Designs Glam Squad. Of course I had to add some bling to the pump. :-) Finally an encouraging sentiment was stamped on a hand-cut banner which was embellished with a few pearls.

Inspiration explanation: I created the three tissue flowers based on the three tissue hangings in the first photo and my embossed upper panel reminds me of the white paneling in that first photograph. I brought in the soft aqua from the wall in the second as well as in the button collection.
