Riley Shoe Accordion1 wm

For my first card today I have used the new Funny Bones Saying “Life is Short Buy the Shoes” with two existing Riley images to create an Accordion card which was created using two Sizzix dies.

On the first part of the accordion I used Shoe Shopping Sophie and on the panel next to that I have used the first part of the saying.

On the third panel I used Shopping Bag Sophie and then on the final panel  the last part to the saying. It looks like Sophie took the advise and purchased the shoes hehe!
