Dutch Dare challenge # 192

This week at Dutch dare challenge our challenge is about fancy folds :D  And our wonderful sponsor is
Crafty Sentiments

For this challenge I got to use the wonderful digi Hootie Christmas Corals from Crafty sentiments.  It's soooo cute!  And I made a card that I had never done which is a Step Center card.... it was much more complicated then I had expected.... I also tried to do a different type of embellishment that I learned by going on my DT friend's blog Desire Fourie you can find her awesome tutorial here.  I'm pretty happy with how my card turned out... it's not as gorgeous as Desire... but for me it was a good attempt!

So to make this card I used Little yellow bicycle paper and DCWV cardstock.  I used my Large deckled rectangle and curved rectangle from Spellbinder. I used my CM punch to cut out the circles for the flowers.  I added some floss and buttons from my stash.

The image was colored using my copics and I added some stickles for the added sparkle.
Here's a closer look at the flower with the button that I made!  I was really happy with the result!
Here's the great sentiment from Create with TLC.
And here's a side view of my card!

So will you be joining in this week at Dutch dare challenge?!?  Don't  forget to look at the gorgeous work that the other DT have done!  Fabulous.... and can't wait to see your amazing creations.
