Twofers - shoes

The challenge over at Twofers is shoes. Now I wanted to take part as they are such a fab group over there, but shoes? Now the only things I own that involve shoes are a CD-ROM which I think is currently in the storage lockup and a freebie tattered lace shoe die that came with crafts beautiful magazine and which is um..I have absolutely no idea where it is.
I then remembered that creative expressions did a series of silhouette stamps with girly sentiments one of which was a Marilyn Monroe quote about shoes. So I set to rummaging. I think I have all the stamp sets apart from that one! Then inspiration struck, if I stamped the image and then added cosmic shimmer glue and glittered just her shoes, would that count? I swapped the sentiments over as I thought that sentiment worked better with this image to highlight the shoes. The shoes have turned out a bit Dorothy, but I wanted a strong colour to stand out against the black and red was the only bright glitter I had. Hopefully the second image shows the sparkle better. I used Simon says stamps stitched rectangles and added a bit of faux stitching to the shaped card blank.
Twofers people - feel free to delete me from the challenge if you don't think I've met the theme. I had fun playing about anyway!
