D'Arcy's Diaries New images and challenge

It's the start of another challenge over on the D'Arcy's Diaries blog today and this time around it's a.....
Menu challenge
Pick a dish from each course and then any two sides and use these to make your card.

Here is the Menu

Starter - Lilac and Turquoise, Pink and Green, Navy blue and Red
Main - Birthday, Thank You, Anniversary
Dessert - Ribbon - Lace - String
Pick two side dishes from - Gems, Pearls, Swirls, Charms, Glitter, buttons, tag, flowers,
Stitching (real or faux), butterflies.

I wanted to make my card look like a Centre Stepper card, but not actually have to fiddle with all the measuring and folding, so with a few pieces of card and a concertina here is the end result.
What do you think?!

 My menu choices were
Starter - Lilac and Turquoise
Main - Birthday
Dessert - Ribbon
Two sides - Butterflies and Pearls

Image - DD_051-B - Coloured in Photoshop
Papers - Nitwit Collections - Promises Collection
Sentiment - Freebie- Create with TLC
Dies- Marianne Designs Double Frame LR0141
Memory Box - Vivienne Butterfly
Magnolia Doo Hickeys - Swirly Butterfly
Martha Stewart Border punch
Ribbon and Pearls - Meiflower

I'm going to enter my card into the following challenges
Dies to die for - Anything Goes with a Die Cut (must be a die sold in store)
Southern Girls -  Die-cut or punch

Pop over to the D'Arcy's Diaries challenge blog and have a look at the fabulous creations from the rest of my teamies and don't forget to check out this weeks new releases.

I think it looks fab, and the faux stepper is a great idea. I love the colours - turquoise and lilac, there's a suprise! And once again, your colouring in is fabulous. xx

Hats off to you really. My father used to say always that you should not follow others rather make yourself one that people follow you. And you are the one like that. Every card has its uniqueness. No repetitions, lovely desings, super colors of paper, Lovely coloring on images... and most of them are with new template. You rock. And yes this is call a GOD gifted too.

Loads of hugs from your forced follower :P, Bhawana
