Beautiful slippers do inspire

In one of the challenges I entered recently a lovely lady by the name of Tina
left a comment and also personally invited me to check out her new Traveler's Inspiration Challenge #1. I of course went to her blog and checked it out. What she is doing is showing us gorgeous photo's from her travels (hence the name!) full of colour and texture and then we get to create a card from this!! Pretty cool hey! :0)
I so love these slippers, how divine are those colours too!!
So whilst my wonderful Husband was sleeping and my precious treasures watched Dora and De'ago I got busy (in the office that is, the house work can wait... he he!)

From the beginning I thought I'd use the Bird on a branch set but as it came together I changed my mind to Embrace life. I knew I wanted to include dazzling diamonds, how could you not with those beautiful sequins and I have been wanting to use the Dear friend stamp for such a long that it had to be included!
Once again drawing inspiration from the pic I sowed too! How cool did that turn out, I sowed leaves!! Me the non-sower, the one who just bought my machine only for Cards!! YAY! (Yes I'm excited, and getting some-what carried away!)
Do check out Tina's site, it's great!!
Smiles Sharnee :0)

GORGEOUS card!! Love the patterned paper - really has that Moroccn feel. And the stitching - Awesome!! And finally the glittery goodness - perfect around the edge of the sentiment :0)

Oh my goodness! This is absolutely wonderful!! I love the stitching! You go girl! I have been too lazy to stitch on my cards, but you may have given me just the motivation I needed because the result was fantastic! So glad you played along with us!
Hugs from Morocco!

Great card, it certainly does take in the whole feel of the picture. Just beautiful.
