Spring Stair Step Birthday!

In a couple of days, it will be my sister, Phillis' birthday!!  She will be 55, double nickels!!  I found this picture of her when it was her 17th or 18th birthday.  She is holding a cake in each hand.  The cakes were made by another sister, Andrea and they are Holly Hobby cakes!  I thought they were done professionally but Andrea told me that she made them.  Back then, they were very popular! Great job Andrea!!

This card is a stair step and I added a flap so I could put the picture in it.  Having a lot of fun with this type of stair step cards.  This is about the 3rd or 4th one I have made but this is the first one I made with a  flap. The directions for these cards are in a previous post.  I decorated the card with Die-namics, sizzix, Memory box and Nestabilities dies. Prima flowers were added with a MS butterfly punch.  The paper is from SEI.

Wanted to make the card springy with the flowers, leaves, butterflies and birds.  The birds are stickers.  So happy that here in the Northeast it has gotten so much warmer!! Yesterday it was 68 and today it will be the same!!    Finally Spring has Sprung!!

Here is the front of the card and when it is closed.  I love using the Memory butterfly die with the Prima Flowers!  and the paper is gorgeous!  Happy Birthday little sister, Phillis!!!
