I remember doing this!

I think there cannot be too many girls in the world who did not dress up and shuffle about in their mum's shoes when they were little……I know I definitely liked to try on my mum's shoes and dream of when I would e big enough to have high heels of my own!

For me this Angelica and Friends stamp is just the perfect image to take you back to the carefree days of a life without responsibility!

So, as you can see I have added a few girly embellishments to this card too - pearls, a flower and some ribbon, I have have gone for a very different colour scheme to my usual and that all seemed around the orange backing paper that you can see. This actually came from a Wild Rose Studio Milton pad which I love. i had originally torn the paper out to use for something else, but didn't in the end, so I decided to go outside of the box and use it on this card instead.

The polka dot paper came from a scrap from a Polka Doodles Cd, and the blue just happens to match the tiny flower centres on the orange paper.

After that it was just a case of finding the right Spectrum Noir colours to match and there you have it!

So - I would like to enter some challenges today and these are as follows:

Well I hope this card has brought a few happy memories to some of you.  :-)

Happy blogging!
