New challenge at CYDA and my first GD card

At last, it's challenge #3 at Craft Your Days Away- it seems to have taken ages to come around! I am particularly excited about this challenge as I get to show off my GD card. The theme is 'Girly 'n' Glitter' and I defy anyone not to be able to think of loads of projects for this challenge! I decided that my card would have to be pink - very girly and my favourite colour! I had lots of ideas for the images, but finally settled on a subject close to many girls' hearts - shoes! I had a lot of fun making this and would like to thank the girls at CYDA for picking me to be the first GD. Why not pop over there and have a peek at the DT's lovely creations and join in the fun.

Shoe and large sentiment stamps - Hero Arts
Small Sentiment stamp - Dovecraft
DP and card from stash
Swirls - Marianne Designs - cut with Cuttlebug
Roses - Wild Orchid Crafts
Finished with ribbon, candy pips, glitter and gems from my local craft shop

The only problem with being a GD is that I don't get to enter the challenge!! So I have found a few challenges that my card fits:

Crafty Cardmakers - Glitter & sparkle
Crafts and Me - Gems and sparkle
Creative Cottage - Celebrations
Your Next Stamp - Anything goes
