Sophie's 14th Birthday Card

Morning all, it's beautifully sunny here today after a full day of rain yesterday. At least the whole Easter weekend hasn't been a complete washout but it has gone far too quickly for my liking. Do I want to go back to work tomorrow? That'll be a big fat no then lol!

Today I'm sharing the card I made for Sophie's birthday last weekend...I recently learnt how to do step cards (courtesy of the lovely Sue from Bearhouse Creations) and now I'm obsessed and can't stop making them. They seem to have really ignited my craft mojo and I'm pretty sure you'll be seeing lots more of this style of card in the coming weeks!

I'm entering my card into the current TPS Challenge #154...Spring is Here (ends 22/4/14)

Another stunner!, I love step cards too, and yet I don't make them very often, always opting for the square 6x6 option, but whenever I see a stepper card I always say to myself that I will make another soon, lol.
