CD Sunday - A La Mode

This month we are lucky to have Ooh La La as our sponsors.   Wendi and Emma were kind enough to sponsor us  back in 2010  and we are delighted that they have offered to do it all again.  This time the CD they have chosen for us is the new 'Shoes in Bloom 2'.  Now I raved about the first Shoes in Bloom and made many of the sample cards for the T.V. launch and this one is just as good - if not better.  You will not be disappointed.

We were all given a different folder to use and mine is 'Lily Pink'.  I wanted to make a parchment card and the colouring of this shoe is ideal for such a purpose.

Here it is:

I printed the image directly on the parchment having decided where my border was going to be embossed.  This is a border by Florence Holmes.  I have added some toning colour just to give it a lift.  I had the flower already made.  I couldn't believe the colour match.

Ooh La La are generously  offering a prize of any one of their CD's so a worthy prize indeed.

We look forward to seeing your 'A La Mode creations' - they don't have to be shoes - anything really fashionable will do.  Good luck.


  1. This is fantastic, Carol.
    Your lovely border and gorgeous flower are the perfect accessories for this beautiful shoe


  2. WOW stunning Carol, The flower in the corner matches this gorgeous shoe perfectly. I loved Ooh La la's first shoes in bloom, I think this is going onto my wish list straight away.
