My first stepper card

I have been waiting to get my hands on this die for a long time. A Crafts Too Presscut stepper card die used to cut out white card. A sheet from a Trim Craft 8x8 Tatty Teddy paper pack, A Sizzix nesting die of hearts is used for the sentiment, the flourish is cut using a Cheery Lynn die. A Tatty Teddy die is used to cut out Teddy embellishment.

It took a couple attempts but I got there in the end.
