So after searching all the blogs for inspiration I came up with this inspired by Kerry Pickle's stepper card but I put the numbers at the bottom so it would still fit in a square envelope. If you are reading this Kerry, thank you ever so much. He is a keen photographer and we have bought him a new camera for his birthday so thought this image would be appropriate.
I am entering this card into the A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge which this week is 3D Something.

The 2nd challenge is ABC Christmas which this week is H for Holly. I have used this scrap of Holly paper (can't remember where from, sorry) and have dry embossed a couple of holly leaves in the corner of the card. Finally, the third challenge is Winter Wonderland which this week is to use embossing. I have dry embossed the corners of the card and used embossing powder on the Sentiment.

The backing papers are Papermania 'For Him' and the image is a Claire Curd coloured with Promarkers. Sentiment done on the computer.
I made the background by using Apple, Grass and Mustard Promarkers in straight lines then cut the card into 6 cm squares and jumbled them up before sticking them back down onto the backing card (think I should have left it as one piece now though). The image was coloured with Promarkers too. I am not completely happy with the blending but think I am getting better with practice. I haven't put a sentiment onto this yet cos I don't know what it is going to be but I think it would be suitable for a belated birthday or get well card.

I have used this cute digi image from Karen's Doodles called Bath Time and coloured it with Promarkers and used 3D gloss on the bubbles. The papers are from the freebie set of My Minds Eye Pretty Please Spring Papers. The Sentiment is a See D. Ribbon and brads from stash.
I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
I love Digi - 3 papers, 2 brads and 1 embellishment. 15/4
Bee Crafty - Birthday Card 10/4
I got the image from Google images and cut it out with my nesties. The brown card is from an old Paper Mill box. I have cuttlebugged the centre panel with my swiss dots folder and added a couple of brads and ribbon from my stash. The wording has been printed directly onto the base card using Greeting Card Factory. Not my usual type of card and I was taken out of my comfort zone a little bit but did enjoy it. Hope she likes it.
