Step Card Challenge

Hi!  Thank you for stopping.  It is an "Step Card" challenge at Fitztown this week and this is my card I made for the challenge. I decided to make a circular step card, my first one using one of Fitztowns' beautiful new images.

This is a side view.

Lots of fun making this card.  I found the pattern for this card at Splitcoast Stampers.  Some of the supplies I used to make mt card are:

Fitztown image - Wedding Day
Assortment of handmade flowers 
Pearls from my stash
Doilies cut with a die and Cricut. 
Sentiment stamp by Rubber Stampede
Copic Markers
Tag Punch - Marvy
Spellbinders Nestabilities Die
Paper by  Momenta

I hope you will join in the step card challenge.  Pop over to the Fitztown challenge blog to see the beautiful cards that the creative team has created to inspire you.
