The theme was shoes and a famous shoe quote
I chose a Marilyn Monroe

Week 3
The ladies had to make up the fan, and add bling in any kind
the first card I reduced the size of the fan so I could add the image.

This one the Fan is the size on the sheet.

This isn't my usual style of cards, 
but I enjoyed the challenge
I kept this one softer using a white card blank, 
and went for a blue and caramel theme, 
I added some black lace, 
charms and a peacock feather to the elements

This one is a little darker,
 With black, caramel on a cream card, 
 with black lace , cameo, and key, I decoupage the ladies top, and basque, and added lace to the dress.
