New Challenge #78 at Glitter n Sparkle

Hey everyone,
Well another day another week.
and if I'm on here that means
it must be Sunday again.
  Hope everyone has had a good week.

Now the weather is starting to pick up a bit 
I've even ventured out into the garden.
I got my other half to do a bit of digging 
while I supervised lol.

Anyway here is my project this Week:-

The Theme at 
Glitter n Sparkle is:-
Mother's Day

Our Sponsors this week are:-

The Stamping Chef who are offering
3 Images from their store

Digi Darla who are offering
5 Images from their store

Bunny Zoe's who are offering
a $10 Gift Certificate for their store

Fred She Said who are offering
a $10 Gift Certificate for their store

My project for this week is:-

Chocolate Cherry Pie Digi Stamp 
from The Stamping Chef 
(one of our sponsors)

This week I thought I would make 
a nice Stair Step Fold Card,
so to begin with I chose a piece of 
14 x 26cm Maroon Card
 Which I scored at 
3cm, 6cm, 10.5cm 15cm, 20.5cm
to make the folds.

Next I cut some Purple/Cream 
'Snakeprint' Linen Card
to fit the Smallest and the Largest 'Steps'.
And some Cream/Purple
'Snakeprint' Linen Card
to fit the Middle 'Step'.

Next I Die-Cut out my Image

using the Majestic Circles (6pc)
And to colour the Edges I used 
Champagne Mist - All Purpose Ink
which I applied with a sponge,
then I added Maroon Promarker to the Ink
and reapplied.

And using Champagne Pearl Card
I Die-Cut out the Backing Shape
so that I could Découpage my Image onto it.

I coloured in my Image 
using my Promarker Pens.
               Skin -             Vanilla
                                     Dusky Pink
                                     Dusky Rose
               Hair -              Shale
                                     Burnt Sienna
               Eyes -            Moss
               Make-up -       Amethyst
               Dress -           Amethyst
               Belt -              Honeycomb
               Socks -          Vanilla
               Shoes -          Slate
               Cake -            Vanilla
               Clip-board -    Ice Grey 4
                                     Cool Grey 5

For My Sentiment I chose one by Jenny Ellory,
along with the matching Coffee Cup
(Luxury Grade 2012 Spring Collection - 
Free in Crafts Beautiful).

I put a strip of Cream Satin Ribbon
across the Middle 'Step',
and placed the Coffee on top.
Then using Purple Organza Ribbon
I handmade a Bow.

To finish off my card

I used 3 Light Purple Flat-Back Gems,
1 in the centre of each 'Star'.
And 2 Purple Paper Roses
