High Heel Swing


This is a swing card for Project Tuesday. I've seen quite a few of these, but never attempted to make one. With the good instructions from Dawn Griffths it was a breeze. I just love the way the shoe turned out, running it through the embossing folder and going around the edge with a marker very carefully really set it off. I wore a lot of shoes like this in my high school and college years, but that's a long time ago and now I go for a much more comfortable walking experience.
A quick edit: I always forget to put in a link to the current sponsor at Tuesday Taggers, this week it's the wonderful Craft Barn, pop over and have a shop.

Thanks for viewing,

OMG--that is just fabulous! I wore heels in my youth, but was never a fan of those insanely pointy toes until now--this is awesome to look at (especially on a card and not on my foot LOL)

that embossing is just great!
