Bloomin' Step Card!

Hello Everyone
...
On my last post I showed a simple card using the Bloomin' with Beauty stamp set. Here is another card but a totally different design.
...
This is one of the cards we are making at my July classes. The steps in the card create an easel effect which looks lovely.

I used different elements from the stamp set - the pot of flowers, bee & bloom sentiment - on different steps of the card.

...
I wanted a ribbon to match so used a technique I learned from Hayley recently. You can colour ribbon using a dauber and the Stampin' Pastels. Just apply your chalk and build up to the intensity of colour you require. Of course you can do this with ink, but then it needs to dry before you can use it to prevent colour transfer - but with pastels you can colour and go!

This makes such a great project to make in a class. I am hoping everyone will enjoy creating it as much as I did!
