Wishing you, like, Happy Birthday

I got such a kick out of a card designed by Karolyn Loncon, that I just had to do my own version.

You know how a lot of the younger generation, like, uses like in almost every sentence. Well, I loved how the sentiment used it and it seemed so perfect on the sneaker!

I cut the sneaker with my Cameo using a Silhouette Studio cut file. I modified it slightly so the toe was white to mimic the Keds All Star. I machine stitched around and then wound a shoe lace through the holes. I printed the sentiment on my computer.



Supplies used: cardstock - white; patterned paper - Re: Found from Upcycle by Cosmo Cricket; font - Socket; shoelace.
