Dropping in to say Hi

** 5/31/16 Winner at Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog! **

Hey there, my crafty friends! Time is just moving right along and we're launching another fun challenge over at Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog this morning! I'm happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #77 - Make It Girly! Come play with us - we want to see your girly and feminine project! We're being sponsored this time by Limited Runs Stamps, Sparkle N Sprinkle and Bugaboo Digi Stamps! How awesome is that?! ;)

I chose the absolutely adorable Bugaboo Brat Autumn Leaves Girl digi for my step card. I paired this image with a stamped sentiment from a fall-themed stamp set, some fall-themed paper, a stamped/punched acorn and several leaf die cuts.

I can't get over how cute this little chicklet is, lol! I colored her with my Zig Clean Color markers and added Wink of Stella to her outfit and wheelbarrow. I added a green twine bow to the acorn and layered three of each of the leaves together for some dimension. The tiny shiny gold elements that I've used as sequins are nail art, believe it or not! Hubby bought me a package of eight tiny glass bottles of different shapes that were meant to be glued onto fingernails but I thought they'd make excellent sequins and/or shaker elements. Teeheehee... I have him trained well, to look for anything I can use on my crafts, lol! ;)

Here's a side view of the step card construction. I really love step cards and haven't made one in a while, so thought it was about time. :)
