Gingham Baby Boy Card

I was asked to make a baby boy card and decided to do something different than the usual ones that I do!!!  I made up a template for little shoes and cut them out of some gingham backing paper and polka dot for the base and stuck them together using foam pads to give a 3d effect.  I then used frosted lace Stickles around the inside edge and used a heart shaped button and ribbon to decorate.  On the lettering I used promarkers to colour and stickles and edged them with distress ink.  I used a lovely backing sheet that I had downloaded from the net and then used my Fiskars scallop punch to create an edge piece.  I then threaded ribbon through the holes and attached the shoes to it.

Here is the finished result

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges
