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:

Pixie's snippets 326 (it's ages since I've been to the playground to play or just want the world go by- lol)
The paper girls 152: shapes
Art impressions 232: playing dress-up
Cardz 4 galz 71: all dressed up
Aloha 118: feminine
Scrapping 4 fun 115: ladies
Dragonfly dreams May: here come the girls
Ellibelle's crafty Wednesday May: for ladies or girls only
Stamp ink paper 151: ABCs and 123s
As you like it: favourite pink or blue and why: pink for girlie cards
