Runway Inspired Challenge # 14

I can't helping taking part in the Runway Inspired Challenge after seeing this lovely lovely shoe photo. Can you blame me? More details here . The DT's cards really knock my socks shoes off, to say the least!
I chose one of the shopping bag image from this set called Style is Eternal. The three images are stamped in TH Distress Inks ( Worn Lipstick, Tattered Rose) and Hero Arts (Field Greens). I used a piece shiny vellum for the backing of the images. Photographing this card was hard because of the shine/reflection! I hope your eye sights are not damaged due to the brightness! 
happy birthday to you
Lastly, I am sharing one of my favorite summer deserts--Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler.
 The colors of this photo (before baking) are close to the shoe photo, too, huh!?
 After baking (with the topping) for 50 min., this is what it looks like. Glorious!
Do you know that I started a series of posts called "How I stretch my Stamps" yesterday!? Details are here and at the top side bar. Please check it out if you have not done so already.
 Hope you are enjoying the summery day!
