Step-side Anniversary card

Just playing around with a Step-side or Stair-step card.  The patterned paper and the light blue is from the DCWV stack called Whimsy and the solid pinkish (Berry Sorbet)  and yellow (Gold Shimmer) is from Papertrey Ink.  The heart and flower is from the Elegant cakes cartridge page 31 and the word art is from the same cartridge, page 70.  The little "fence" on the second stair is a Martha Stewart punch. The Ribbon is also Papertrey Ink called Lemon Tart. And of course the bling is provided by my favorite - Stampin' Up's Dazzling Diamonds.

I first tried this card style about a year ago.  I got my original instructions from a great web site   She is a Stampin' Up rep and always has great ideas.
What prompted me again to make one of these cards was Joy's post the other day,  I am a subscriber to both of these blogs and they provide endless inspiration. 

Thanks for stopping by,
