Birthday Wishes - Side Step Card

Talk about side steps - That is what has been happening all holidays - I have been away, home, away, home, away, home...and this is a brief stop again.  Panic... only 6 days left and I feel I have hardly been home.  However it has been all good - lots of cuddles with my new grandson and relaxing time at the lake - next time with good friends.   Just not all the scrapping I would have liked to have done.  I was just getting on a roll last week and it was time to 'side step' again. 

So... last week I completed my 1st side-step card for JoJo's Birthday Wishes.  Joanne makes absolutely amazing cards - inside and out - so I had a challenge on my hands and had mulled over it for several weeks before finally getting on with it.  Here is what I came up with.  
Paper is from a DCWV Mariposa Stack, dress form - Kaiser, Flowers - Prima and Wild Orchid, Bling - Prima. Alpha - Prima, Lace from material some 30 years old, and the button bunting idea  I recently saw on someone's creation.

 I carefully cut around the bird and left the acetate on the back for the window effect. 
Well I must away - lots to do and I am feeling a tad guilty blogging when others are doing my garden.  eeek!!

Have a great week and thank you so much for visiting my blog.

Until next time......
