Link in the chain - Octobter

It's reveal day at Card Chain Challenge. Mine has gone over the Pond to Linda this time.

From the options on offer for October I chose the colour palette (ruby, amber, sapphire) and the theme of shoes. Those things combined in my head to make a Wizard of Oz vibe so yellow brick road it had to be! That meant my usual one layer creations for CCC fell by the wayside as I wanted to use this brickwork embossing folder. 

The shoes have some glitter pen on them for a bit of glamour and the tiny nail art gems add a bit extra in that department.

Oh, my! I nearly went with an Oz theme too, but had a set I really wanted to use. I LOVE the shoes. I really wish they were still available as I am a total Dorothy nut. Fabulous card, Joanne. Thanks for being a link in our chain again, Jo x

Your brick wall/road is just fabulous. You have created great texture with the colouring. I can imagine the sparkle on the shoes xx

That is fun! I never get tired of Wizard of Oz themes. Now I would not think of using a wall for a road...but seeing yours it totally works! I am so glad to see other people's work bc I am can too narrow thinking.
