True Friends

Hi Everyone

Do you love those different step cards that are out there in blogland?? I know I do.

I found a great card with the steps in the center. This design is known as a double sided step card.  I found this card quite easy for me to cut. Click Here for a great post with instructions in case you want to try this yourself.

On the side panels, I used DP and over that I used some 5X7 HOTP Color Me Floral Card Toppers.
They were too long for my side panels so I trimmed them so they would be just the right length.

For the center area, I used a clear heavy transparent sheet for the back step. I attached the stamped oval with the sentiment stamped on the top and a lace die cut was used at the bottom of that piece..

On the front step, I used another transparent sheet with that lace piece at the bottom and them I used a stamped butterfly on the top of that piece.

The sentiment is a little hard to read, so here is what it says,
"True friends grow seperately without growing apart."

What a great sentiment

Stamps:  My Sentiments Exactly - True Friends
Paper/Card White CS, Pink CS, DP, HOTP - Color Me Floral Card Toppers
Ink: Memento - Rhubarb Stalk
Dies Used: Spellbinders Ovals sm  
Accessories: Spectrum Noir Markers, heavy transparent sheets.

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today,

This is gorgeous. I have yet to try a step card. I might have to give it a whirl ones of these days. Right now my arm is bothering me. Arthritis bugging me.
