TERRIFICALLY THRILLING THURSDAY AT SHELLY'S IMAGES

It's THURSDAY, and time for me to share the card I made for 
TERRIFICALLY THRILLING THURSDAY AT SHELLY'S IMAGES today.

But first, I would like to announce that the winner of the Shelly's Images Gift Voucher, is commenter Doreen.
Your gift voucher is on its way through cyberspace to you !

Doreen, thanks so much,  I love reading the comments on my posts!

And now back to Shelly's Images' special featured image of the week, called "High Heel Shoes".  If you pop along to the Shelly's images store now, you will be able to snag it at a special price!
High Heel Shoes
Here is my card :


I used the spotlight stamping technique and added Glossy Accents to the blue shaded sections of the shoes.


This card fits perfectly into the new challenge at Shelly's Images blog, "U PICK 2" ... you are given this list

Ribbon
Bling
Color Blue
Flowers
Digi Image
Markers
Punched Borders
Monochromatic

and you need to choose two of them to add to your card.

Now I have a confession:  The original two items for my card were a digi image and the colour blue, and while I was sewing the beads onto the butterfly (yes ... I sew them so I know they stay where they are meant to be and I don't have to wait for any glue to dry) ... anyway, while I was sewing I pricked my finger with the needle.  Now that happens often so I never take any notice and don't really feel the pain anymore.  Then all of I sudden I saw red on my card where there should only have been blue and white ... horror of horrors - a messed up card.  So out came the bling rhinestone and blue ribbon, and I thought as I had most of the items on the list on my card, let go the whole way and add EVERYTHING.  I added the punched border and that completed the list.

But YOU don't have to add everything on the list, only two ... and if you do, you can link your creation to the challenge and stand the chance to win!
