Baby Step card

This is another step card that I have been working on. Couldn't post it before now since I didn't want the recipient to see it early. I think I am in the clear now so I can share it with you now. 



I am really happy with how it turned out. Mind you, it was not a card that came together fast. No, I played with it for a few hours before I got it looking exactly how I wanted it.


I am linking this card up to the following challenges
Little Scrap Pieces- Anything your Heart Desires challenge
Stars and Stripes Cut it Out challenge


Here's How I Did it...
Basic side step card when folded measures 4.25 x 5.5
Paper is from Lasting Impressions and my scrap box
Ek punch to create the bottom of the dresser
Drawers are just strips of card stock cut to fit with tiny brads for knobs
Bear/layers cut from Christmas cartridge
Mobile on crib is the top of a bird cage from the Songbird cart sized on gypsy
Stars from CM border punch
Crib and dress/layers from Baby Steps cartridge
Scraps of lace, ribbon, chalk, glitter pen to accent the card
Sentiment is from Scrappy Mom Stamps Special Delivery set
