Nan's 80th Birthday

 It's Marks Nan's 80th Birthday on Thursday so I have made this side stepper card for her. I'm sorry the pictures are rubbish but the weather has been wet and grey here today not the best for taking pictures.
 I've used this cute Lili of the Valley stamp which has been coloured with promarkers and some stardust stickles on the butterflies. I have layered and matted the image onto so more lilac card and some white glitter card.
 On the side steps I have used some purple paper from Papermania Henbury Lane layered onto white glitter card. On the bottom step I have tied some organza ribbon which has been coloured with promarkers. The next step has a flower which is made of 2 white Papermania ones again coloured with promarkers and finished with a glittery brad, the swirl is cut on my cuttlebug and the butterfly is 2 layers one from card and one from vellum cut with an x cut punch.
Another flower and butterfly on this last step, I've cut the circles with my nesties the happy birthday are peel offs and the 80 is some glittery stickers from Anita's.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Critter Sketch Challenge - Fancy Folds
Ellephantastic Challenge - Anything but a square or a rectangle
