Step Right Up or Maybe Slide Right Down

This week the theme for the Sassy Cheryls Challenge Blog was set by the ever Sassy Miss Ann. Make a step card. That in itself would have been challenge enough, but did you see the cards that the DT made for the Challenge? If not, please go check them out, and leave them some love, because they raised the bar with their creations.

I got an idea for my entry, and thankfully, because of the Cameo and the Silhouette Store, I was able to find a pre-designed step card that I could use parts of for my challenge.

Cheryl recently added these two images called Max is Flying High and Maddie is Flying high. I decided that a step card would be the perfect chance to build a scene of summer fun of sliding in a box down a hill. The images are colored with my Copics(that surprised you didn't it). I think that coloring with the pencils has improved my Copic coloring. Note the duct tape holding the planes together. Duct tape is a wonderful thing.

Here's an angled view so that you can see that it is actually a step card.

All cut files are from the Silhouette store and solid card stock was used.

As usual I've waited until the last minute, to get my card made, and if I don't soon relieve my DH of babysitting duty, he may leave.
