Side Step Birthday Card

Hi all I created this card for a co-workers girlfriend for her birthday, I really hope she likes it.   This is my first attempt at creating a side step card, I have seen alot of pictures of these cards and they seemed bigger than what they really are.  To make this card I followed the tutorial from SplitCoast Stampers at this link  This card was really easy to make, sometimes things look harder than they really are.

To make this card I used a owl image from recollections.  Sentiment is from JustRites Grand Sentiments.  Dies used are Spellbinders Les Papillions Two, Delicate Doilies and Romantic Rectangles.   Exotic Butterfly Small from Cheery Lynn Designs. Fabulous Phlox from Memory Box. I also used Martha Stewarts punch Branch and punch around the page.

This card was entered into the following challenges:
