The Cuttlebug Spot - Step Cards

It is time for another challenge for The Cuttlebug Spot.  This week the challenge is to make a step card.  This is a new one for me.  I have seen so many beautiful ones around, but had never tried it myself.  This is a fun card to  make, but I wasn't all that happy with my card.  So today after work I re -worked it until I was happy.

Here is the first version.

Over all it is not a bad card, but for me it seemed like it was quite right

Here is the new version.

  I used Theresa's latest set from Gina K Designs called Dino-Mite.  I hope you will stop by The Cuttlebug Spot and play along this week.  While you are there check out the rest of the Design Teams wonderful creations or you can go straight to their blogs, the link list is over on the right.  Thank you for stopping by.
