Welcome to the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #90

Before we get started, we wanted to thank everyone who took part in the Favorite Stamp challenge.  Seems it was more of a challenge than we anticipated, hard to chose just one!

Our teamie, the talented Lorraine has chosen the theme for this challenge,
she wants us to make a Multi-Fold card.

Are these babies just the cutest!!!!

I decided on a stair-step card.

I started with a sunny yellow textured card stock and made the base for the stair-step card.
I stamped the image on a Nestibilities die cut colored with Copics, distressed the edges with yellow ink.
I matted this with bright blue card stock and added pearls.

On the next stair, I cut another die from the same set only smaller and stamped and embossed the sentiment by Endless Creations (I LOVE THIS SAYING).  The two small hearts are a punch. On the two top stairs, I added a white border from Martha Stewart punches.  On the last step, I created a carrot garden to tie into the stamped image.  I distressed the edges of the kraft paper and "planted my carrots"

Our sponsor this week is Di's Digi Downloads.
They are generously offering three Digi's

Our Guest Design Team Member for February is Anne Ray.

We can't wait to see what you come up with for this challenge.

I'm also entering this card at the Cupcake Challenge 131 - anything but a square
