hope you can cling to day 23

Hi friends.  Here's my card for today's challenge for breast cancer awareness on SCS

Challenge twenty-six -- Impossible Things Happen.  A card inspired by a fairy tale. 

For awhile I was really stumped by this challenge.  I have no stamps that have anything to do with fairy tales.  And I already used the idea for Cinderella's carriage for another challenge.  I thought about using an apple (Snow White), but I don't have an apple stamp either.  I decided to go on line and see if I could find a digital image to use.  And then I remembered that I have a dollar stamp of a high heel shoe.  Perfect!  I can make Cinderella's glass slipper!

I stamped the shoe in tuxedo black memento ink and die cut it with a spellbinders circle die.  I embossed it and sponged with cool caribbean ink.  I colored the shoe with copic markers, trying to get the look of glass.  Then I decided to go one step further and added crystal effects.  This is not one of my favorite products, and I wasn't happy with it, so I scraped it all off.  But I still wanted to shoe to be glossy, so I colored over it with a versamarker and then added clear embossing powder & heated it.  I used two coats.  For a little extra bling, I added a rhinestone.

I decided to add a frame with a tear drop circle die cut from cool caribbean card stock.  On the white card base, I stamped the tiniest snowflake from snow swirled (SU) and added some sparkles with a marker.  Then I added some glitter to make it look like fairy dust.  The sentiment is from a set of words I bought years ago at a local craft store.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

The glass slipper is genius! I actually think it fits perfectly with the "believe" sentiment!
