Stepping Out at CD Sunday

Good morning, it's a bit blowy today but hopefully it will keep off rain and I can get the washing dry. This week at CD Sunday Jocelyn has chosen Stepping Out as her theme for this fortnight, I had something in mind but couldn't find the cd it was on so settled for using Fabulous Shoes from Katy Sue Designs.
I used a precut card and put it through the printer, I can never manage to get a tidy look if I try to print the backing paper and attach to these fancy shapes, I used a Tonic die to do the circular background and added the pre-coloured topper off cemter to give it a bit of interest. The topper is from a sheet so I have several others to use up but this is a lovely one so it will be fine and I'll manage to use them all.
Because I off sett the background slightly I had room for some pearls and a bow , I used the bow maker to and added some lace in but not sure you can see it in this picture. I added glitter around the topper edge, more to conceal the fact that I had cut it with scissors so it helps to hide any imperfections.

I am entering this into the following challenges
Allsorts - No Squares Allowed
Crafty Calendar - Things With Wings
Kraftyhands - Pearls and Lace
Art by Miran - Challenge 32 Anything Goes
Sister Act - Always anything goes
