If the Shoe Fits....

Scrap It! That's the name of a new challenge blog I found. Don't ask me how - I don't know. I was on someone's blog and followed a link - that's my story and I'm sticking to it! LOL

Anyway - they had a challenge (what else! LOL) to use PURPLE & GREEN. Reading the post, it stated the DT had a hard time with it - I said "How hard can it be?!?!" Well, as soon as I started, I found out how hard! But, I did prevail! (ta da!)

You may not be able to tell but that purple layer is a self-stick GLITTER paper! Of course, I didn't realize it was self stick til I started cutting into it, but that's another story entirely. Back to the card. I had purchased a bunch of lace cardstock, but never really got to use it, so here it is. Along with my Nestibilities ribbon slide, more of those little rhinestones I have been using all over the place and my Verve sentiment (they ALWAYS have the BEST sentiments) and I called it done!!

So this is my first challenge for If the Shoe Fits...I'm liking it! Can't wait to see what next week brings. :)
