Two Challenges in ONE......

This card is for my two Thursday challenges.....

Stampin B's -- Lois challenged us to make a square b'day card with piercing.
CCEE Stampers -- Charlene found a site of fun facts.  This is the one she shared with us for this week........ "The best time for a person to buy shoes is in the afternoon. This is because the foot tends to swell a bit around this time."   The keyword of SHOES was chosen to inspire us.

Well.....I went right to my fav polka dotted heels by Verve.  There was a day that I used to wear shoes like this every day......now I am a Birkie girl!!!!  I used one of the sentiments from the same set, and kept the birthday sentiment for the inside.  I used some SU ribbon, my Spellbinder fancy die, my corner rounder (which I use so much that I need to sharpen it up with some aluminum foil soon....lol!!!)  I, of course, did the required paper piercing and finished it off with a touch of bling.  Truly a girly card.

Now be sure to check out the creations of both of these fabulously talented and fun teams.  Here are the links to get you to the team blogs.
