A new pair of shoes - and a bling challenge!

Hi!  Just popping in with a quick post this morning.  I'm playing along in the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC55: Put a bling on it
Oh yes.  I do like bling.  I took a very different direction for this challenge, as you'll see.  I don't know that I've ever entered anything but a card in a challenge.  I hope the girls at CAS-ual Fridays don't mind, but...this is my entry - a pair of paper crafted shoes!

Eck!  These were so much fun to create.  If you follow my blog you know that I've been making hand crafted shoes recently, for a customer.  It's such a different process from card making...lots of cutting,scoring and folding.  But similar when it comes to embellishing.  I used Ellen Hutson's high-heel shoe template.

I used very few supplies to create these shoes.  Creamy Caramel textured card stock and Whisper White card stock from Stampin' Up!.  Then some Scor-tape and a couple of caramel colored rhinestone flourishes.
Few materials, but quite a lot of time.
These shoes will go into my Etsy shop.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.  I hope you'll leave a comment!
