My First Step Card

Over at Outlawz Challenges the twist they've added to Thursday's Anything Goes challenge is to make a Step Card.  I'd never made a Step Card.  So what to do?  As my nephew Ben (handsome, brilliant, and all things fantastic Ben) would say: "YouTube it."  And that's just exactly what I did.  There are oodles of videos showing tutorials on step cards and I'm sure many are very helpful.  This is the one that I found to be the most helpful.  

Patty Penn's video
can be found by clicking right there on her name!

After watching Patty's video, I decided I can do that.
(She explained it so completely.)  So, I decided to combine that challenge with the "Circus" theme at 365 Cards.
The two just seemed to go hand in hand.

Here is the result:

I love how incredibly easy the base of this card was.  This was my first step card but definitely won't be be last.
In fact, my hubby asked me to make a retirement card for a friend of his and said a step card would be great.
Thanks so much, Patty, for the great video.
