Believe - 3-Step Card 6"x6" - FFFC #88

Hello.  Happy Friday!

It's time for a new challenge at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog.  It's our Challenge #88 and is being hosted by the lovely May and for the theme she has chosen everyone's favorite...anything goes.  For more details on the challenge and how to join in the fun, hop over to Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge. Have a look also at the fabulous cards and projects that my DT teammates have created.  I hope they will inspire you to join us.

This is what I've created for my DT card.

A surprise in the inside!  I have made this into a 3-step card as you can see here. 
I was trying to find an image and a sentiment to match ones on the card front.  Got this idea from Angela...thanks, Angela!

This is a different version of the step card than the ones I've made in the past (HERE and HERE).  When you first open the card, the stairs here are in front of you rather than facing to the right as in my previous cards.  The size of this card is 6" x 6".

I have used my Letraset Promarker and Pantone Tria markers to colour the images for this card.

I am using a background stamp from Magnolia as the main feature--
Waterlily Background from the Once Upon A Time Collection 2013
The Frog Prince is from a separate Magnolia stamp from their Jubilee Collection 2007--all coloured up, cut out and mounted on foam tape.

This is Tilda with Prince Froggy, also from Once Upon A Time Collection 2013. 

Check out Diana's online store, Magnolia-licious--an excellent source for your Magnolia stamps, both full-size and mini stamps.  If you don't see the particular one you are looking for in the store, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.
Also available now at Magnolia-licious are those adorable Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet and also cutting dies from MagnoliaMemory Box, PoppyStamps.
Diana offers discounted prices, excellent customer service and you also get to earn 2% in-store credit with every purchase!
