The challenge theme this week at CASology is Week #12: SHOE!!

It was Wednesday night and I got in from work thinking what shall I do? I deliberated over the singular shoe and then started thinking about all the shoes that are in my wardrobe, under the bed, lined up on the bedroom floor, you get the picture. So, I need to use multiple shoes.
I had a little bag full of shoes punched out of different colour paper so I tipped them out, lined them up on my desk, moved them around, made patterns with them and ended up with a pinwheel of shoes. Lovely. It looked like a flower so thats what I did for this challenge, a flower made of shoes.
Having carefully arranged them in a circle on the desk, the difficult bit was keeping them in a circle to get them stuck onto some card. I got busy, so revisited the shoe circle again on Saturday morning. I turned them over because the backs of some were white and I thought if I arranged them face down then I could stick a circle on top of them, flip it over and the shoes would be in place. It worked, but do it quickly or the whole lot will end up stuck to the desk.
This is my shoe flower card, I enjoyed making this one!

Shoes punched out of scraps of coloured paper.
White die cut scalloped circle mounted on pink die cut scalloped circle.
Mount on black card and pink card, add a pink Candi (Craftwork Cards).
