Pearls n Leather

This card is for my cousins daughter who celebrates her 18th birthday next week...

The image is by Stitchy Bear, well actually it's an image of one shoe, I flipped it, then added another shoe as I prefer the look of the pair, although I did print the single shoe with pearls again so That I could layer it with foam pads. I printed an additional string of pearls too, after colouring them, I cut them out and gave them a touch of Anita's 3D clear gloss. Once dry, I glued them on top.
The papers used are by Dovecraft (spotty), Samantha Walker 'cuckoo 4 u' (floral) cut with a xcut scalloped circle die, and a ditressed pale pink piece found in my stash. The pretty border was made using a xcut punch (sparkle), I used more punches to make the daisies and the leaves, punch out the number 18, and create the faux ric rac. Flat back pearls and gems finish the card.
