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.
Have a great day! Happy scrapping!
