Thank you shoe!

I had a thank you card to make for a Teacher who loves shoes. I decided to go with a template I found on the net. Printed it directly onto this lovely card, it has a gorgeous soft feel to it. I ran it through my swirly embossing folder and paper pieced the inset with the matching paper. I added some sticky lace, punched a flower and added shading to the heel.
