PWC245 - Red, Pink and White

Love, love, love, let's celebrate love.  This week the Paper Pretties challenge PWC245 is "Red, Pink and White".  That's the perfect color scheme for a Valentine Day card for your sweetie.  Of course you don't have to make a Valentine, you can make any kind of card as long as you use red, pink and white as your main colors.  You don't even have to use Paper Pretties products but if you have them we'd love to see you use them.

My card is celebrating love of a different kind, shoe love.  It uses my favorite Paper Pretties stamp set, Sassy Shoes.  I think every woman should have at least one funky pair of shoes and at least one pair of red shoes (I have four pairs) and every stamper should have this stamp set.  Just look at those shoes, pointy toes, sky high spike heels and animal prints.  How have you lived without them.  There's even bows and flowers to decorate the plain shoe and of course some sentiments.  AND of all the cards I've made, the ones made with this stamp set get the most notice and compliments. 

Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Sassy Shoes"
ink - Memento Tuxedo Black"; MFT Color Box "Razzle Berry" and Color Box "Chianti"
paper - My Favorite Things "Whip Cream", "Real Red" and "Pink Lemonade" card stock; Stampin' Up "Sending Love" Specialty DSP
miscellaneous - Prismacolor Pink pencil; the Cat's Pajamas "Heart Trio" Cut-Ups; Martha Stewart "Optic Dots" border punch; baker's twine; mini brads; heart charm; machine stitching
