A Challenge For Sure!

I guess by the word "challenge" things really should be a bit of an effort! And this card was. I wanted to try the Center Step on SCS, and it took three tries before I got the cutting and scoring right! But now I know, and it is a super fun design!
My butterflies and sentiment were stamped on Kraft with Rich Razzleberry ink. Images are from Butterflies Are Free and Bud Set by Rubbernecker Stamps.
The embellishments at the bottom are from one of my favorite things I found at CHA from Epiphany Crafts - (new to me, but not new to others) the Round Shape Studio Tool. After playing with it, I loved how easy it was to make my own matching embellies! They are kind of like giant dew drops, I guess. There are other shapes as well, and I hope to get the button shaped tool soon.
Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate all feedback~! Have a wonderful Saturday~

What a beautiful card, Judith! I'm proud of you for not giving up - I haven't figured out how to do these step cards yet, but I hope to someday. :-) I haven't heard of Epiphany Crafts, but I'm going to go check it out now...those embellies are awesome!

Hey Judy's been SO LONG since my last visit (MY BAD!) ... hope you had a nice birthday!!
This creation is AMAZING and LOVE your choice of colors & patterns! I'll have to give this a whirl when I have ALL DAY to spend on it ... if it took you 3 tries, heaven knows it will take me all day!! LOL!
Hope you are well and enjoying your summer! HUGS to you!
