Stepper card

This is a commissioned card I was asked to make for a granddaughter who is artistic - I hope it hits the spot!

The background on the left and the pieces across the bottom are offcuts from some Paris Nights 12 x 12 papers. The one under the lefthand topper is flocked ... lovely touchy feely. I can't remember where the toppers came from ... I've had them a long time - they had to be fussy cut. Other papers are offcuts from double sided paper by American Crafts called the colour of memories, with the addition of two glittered stars from Hobbycraft.

It's been a long time since I showed any crafting that isn't for my weekly Christmas or monthly Patterned Paper challenges. I'm still crafting when asked to do commissions, but have had to cut back generally because of John needing more of my time. I've also been trying to really sort out my craft stuff and label so that I can find the right things without having to hunt for them ... I'm still doing it ... one day soon, it will be done and I'll feel happier knowing it's all in order ... I like to be organised, so it does bother me a bit ...

Anyway, back to this card ... I' entering it into the following challenges:

  12. Wonderful card Hazel and brilliant to see you in the Playground. How strange though, I made my Rudolph Days entry card yesterday and jotted down to also link it into your challenge - and that was without knowing you'd come to play!
