My first "step card"!

As I'm trying to relish my last week of freedom before going back to school (I'm a teacher), I'm also trying to get in some crafty time each day.  My friend Suzanne (Check out her blog at Scrap with Suzy!) is a new Design Team member at The Digi Bistro, and their challenge this week is to create a step card.  Since I'd been wanting to make my oldest son Kennedy a back-to-school card ANYWAY, I thought this would be perfect for him!

I think Kennedy is REALLY going to like this card!  I used my Cricut Locker Talk cartridge to cut the images on the steps, and I used the Makin' the Grade cartridge for the lettering on the left.  I wrote the word "English" on the book, and I distressed the edges with Color Box Cat's Eye Blackbird ink.  Both pieces of ribbon were from my stash.  Suzanne provided a tutorial/directions link for a step card on her blog, and the link can be found here.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
--The Crazy Challenge
--Creative Inspirations 

Have a great day!  Happy scrapping!
