Shoes are a Girls Best Friend - Alphabet Challenge - M for Metal

Good morning, what a lovely sunny day we had yesterday.  Well my washing machine should be delivered today at long last seems like ages since I did any washing, my washing basket looks set to explode!!!
Well lets get on with my card for 
and this week the theme is 
M for Metal 
Don't forget we also have a DT call so if you would like to apply please click on the link above..

I haven't used a Lilly of the Valley stamp in awhile and decided this stamp would be perfect for this challenge.  

I'm so into these shaped easel cards at the moment I just love the effect that you get with them and they always seem to come together perfectly.. I achieved the shape using the Oval  XL Stacker die from the brilliant Cheery Lynn Dies which are now becoming very popular here in the UK.. I have been very lucky to design for Sweet Stamps which stock them.

This cute little Lilly of the Valley stamp I got from the Doncaster show and have completely fallen in love with their new range of stamps so you will probably be seeing a lot more for these, so watch this space.. 

The little sentiment is a set from Whimsy stamps which I purchased from Bunny Zoe's store. I love going shopping with my best friend and thought the sentiment fit this stamp and card down to the ground.. and just poking up at the bottom is one of those gorgeous crochet flowers that my Mum makes.. 

The inside view, which I have kept quite plain with a few flowers, swirl and a handmade bow made out of Jute and muslin with a satin flower for the centre.  I made another one of the front but I used a big brad and attached the shoe charm to..
