A Happy Monday Kind Of Card!

Happy Monday, my friends!

I found some extra play time,and I spent it making this fun card!

I've made my first side-step card using this lovely new image from StampArt Design by Kathryne.
Her name is Maggie, and you can find her right HERE at Whimsy Stamps.

Isn't she adorable? She comes with bonus butterflies and sentiments, one of which I used on my card.
I will be adding my side-step template to my "Free Stuff" page as soon as I get a chance.

I coloured the image, matted it, and placed it on the left side of the card.
For the flowers I used a freebie stamp that came with a recent magazine purchase. 
I thought it matched the image very well. I stamped and coloured those, and fussy cut them. 
I layered them up on the "steps" along with a grass border punch.
I used the sweet sentiment and turned it into a sign post.
I coloured the butterflies and added them.
Then I added a little bit of stickles to everything!

Here's a side view:
