April showers

This card I made a while ago but thought it was very appropriate for kraftyhands challenge. My base card was 6x6 and I started by matting some patterned paper onto a slightly larger blue square piece of card which was slightly smaller than my base card. I then took two pieces of the same blue pearl card the same size and on one piece I placed some contrasting patterned paper and on the other I placed white card after I had stamped the steps image. Next I placed the first matt onto my card, I then used one of my punches to create the border and placed ribbon onto it before placing it onto the card. I then placed the layer with the steps image onto the card before putting on the stamped image of the little girl which I  coloured and cut out and put foam pads on the back to raise slightly. To finish I added a few gems and a sentiment, hope you like it and thanks for looking.

I am entering this card into kraftyhands challenge
