Step Card

I used the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers for this step card.  My sister has received it so I can post it :)


My Favorite Things--Blooming good day stamp set for image and sentiment
I paper pieced her dress using the same Cosmo Cricket Paper I used for the background papers.
The rest has been colored using Copics and Prisma colors markers

Spellbinder Lattice Rectangle and Labels Elevan

Sizzix Branch with Leaves die (I had to trim them a bit to make them work so they didn't hang over the card to far.
Prisma flowers (Center)
Little black flowers are a little punch I bought at Michaels $ section, Centers have Salmon color Pearl Pen
Lace from my stash
Pearls have been colored to match the paper with Prisma marker

Here is a closeup of the image:



Well it is almost 3:00 pm as I am writing this and it is 105 degrees out there.  My hubby and I did a little bit of errands this morning and by the end it was just getting too HOT out there.  I bet my daughter wishes she lived closer so she could drop by and hang out in the air conditioning.    I hope you all are doing well in this heat.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Have a Wonderful weekend,
Connie

So cute, Connie! Bet your sister loved this sweet little girl in her garden. I can hardly believe 105 at 3 am! Good grief, I'm complaining because we have to sunshine, but at least we're not cooking!
