Where the Path May Lead - Stairstep Challenge

Happy Thursday everyone.  I have another challenge that I would like to share with you today.  This one is for Just a Scrappin, and our directive this week was to make a stair step card. 

I went to work early on this one because I missed the last one by a day and with the potential of Isaac coming our way (I live in the NW Florida) I didn't want to chance missing it again this week.  So off I went soul searching for ideas when I came across a couple of leftover cuts I still had from some Boy Scout invitations I made for my sister back in 2009. 

That's right ladies and gentlemen - never throw away a perfectly good die cut because you never know when you might be able to use it.  As a matter of fact I have a whole bucket just for leftover cuts and they're organized by "theme" too.  But I digress.....

With left over cuts in hand my stairstep card was born - I mean created.  For this one I used:

Camping out for the mountains cut as different sizes; and

Going Place for the hikers cut at 1 1/2"

The sky background with the sentiment is simply a rectangle that was cut and adhered to the very back "step" to help add even more depth/dimension to the card.  I gotta tell ya, I'm very pleased with the way this card turned out.

And now that you've seen my creation for this week's challenge, hop on over to Just A Scrappin to see the rest of the teams awesome work this week.  Then get your creative juices flowing and create a stairstep card, link up and play along with us.  I can't wait to see what you come up with.
