Back to Basics Challenge - A Simple Stepper card

I hope you are enjoying this heatwave,  long may it last and we have a good summer for a change.  When writing this post it is 29c and its getting hotter.
Today we have another challenge at Back to Basics,  a simple stepper card.   I used a pink card which has a fleck in it,  and cut out a simple stepper card.  The image is from Cup Cake  Crafting its been in my box for a while so it was nice to use to make this card.  I decoupage the image with four layers,  at the sides I used a flower die strip and placed pink gems in the centers,  and a die cut butterfly and placed two gems on the body.  Finishing off the card with a pink bow and peel offs happy birthday.

We would be delighted to see you are there is a the Back to Basics and beyond challenge blog and here is a link to the blog
