with some of the crafty items I picked up in the UK. I just love the die cut flourish from Cheery Lynn so came up with this step card...inspired by Crafty Kat's blog. I have been wanting to make a step card for ages and this is just the prototype as it wasn't quite correct...but I think Naomi's friend will like it.

I am back to one of my favourite colours with this card, using lace from my Mum's stash, card from my stash, EK sucess punch and pearls from Paper cellar.I have used a Tilda image coloured with Pro Markers and some little butterfly and flower beads. The lace circle is another Marianne Creatables...I love them.

Thank you for your comments, I love hearing from you....and welcome any new followers to my blog. xxxx

Finishing touches...

before I travel back to the UK. I have struggled crafting this week as I have been so busy with the Reachout Centre and it has been so hot. But I did manage to finally finish this card. I usually make mostly pink, purple, blue and lilac cards but this blog has really helped me get out of my comfort zone and I am really beginning to love oranges, peach, gold, creams etc.

I made the flower from a tutorial by Becca on Amazing Paper Grace.

Card Supplies:
Paper: K & Company.
Acetate swirls and squares using BigShot and Nellies Multi frame and Sizzix Dies.
Frame distressed using Metallic rub-ons.
Half-pearls and Pearl Clusters: Papercellar.
Ribbon, card and doiley from stash.

I would like to add this card to the following Challenges:
Digi Doodles Shop's Best # 65 - Anything Goes.
Fab 'n' Funky #79- Triangles.
Dream Valley # 10- Ribbon.
