She is a lady

Hello everybody! Hope everything is well with you. Today's creation is a step ladder card. I had a little difficulty with this one, what a surprise, right? :) As with everything that I try for the first time, and being the perfectionist that we crafters tend to be, well... you can imagine! But, I didn't let some folds and cuts get the best of me and after some stomping on the floor, mumbling unintelligible words to myself, my husband asking what was going on, and some light screaming... I prevailed! Here is the beautiful Lady Tilda.

This card was created using image from: Magnolia Stamps – "Lady Tilda"; DP: DCVW "The Mariposa Stack"; Martha Stewart Punch: "Doily Lace Edger"; White Highlighter Pen. Flower and other embellishments are from my stash. This image was stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copic markers.
