Serendipity Blog Challenge #8- Center Step Card

Better late than never, but today I have a card I made for Serendipity Stamps Blog Challenge #8.  What started out as a little weekend get-a-way to Las Vegas turned into a 12 day nightmare for my husband and I.  He ended up in the hospital and I was unable to schedule my card for the Oct. 20th challenge.  I am happy to report that we are back home now and my husband will be good as new in a week or two, so all in all, it was a very "Lucky" trip to Las Vegas.

This week's challenge was to make a Center Step card, which seems difficult, but now that I know how to make one on my Silhouette Cameo, was so simple to accomplish.  Here is my card:
I saw a card online by  Carla of Carlasstampingspot and loved how she used the Polynesian Sails Oval die from Cheery Lynn as the focal point of her card.  I own that same die and decided to use it with a beautiful stamp from Serendipity Stamps...Wedding Cake.  I also used sentiments from Serendipity Stamps (Bridal) and (Shower) and think this would be a very pretty card to attach to a Bridal Shower gift.  I used patterned papers by Creative Imaginations (Beautiful You) along with a Spellbinder label.  I added some lilac flower soft to the flowers to add a little more dimension and a bow with some twine and a cute little wedding ring embellishment.
Even though I was late, you still have enough time to enter the SSCB #8 challenge...the deadline isn't until March 30th, so why not give this Center Step card challenge a try?  You can win $20 off your next Serendipity Stamps order.  Remember, all you need to use is one Serendipity stamp or die to qualify!
