 It will soon be time to start thinking of holidays again (if you aren't already!) & to get us in the mood our theme this week is Around the World. Now before we go any further I have a confession to make! I cheated! The stepper card I'm using this week I bought at a recent craft show already cut & scored for me. Why re-invent the wheel when it's all done for you?! Of course a stepper card is very easy to produce from a sheet of A4 card using your bone folder &  craft knife & if you've not come across one before just e mail me & I'll gladly send you a template. 
I used the direct to paper technique to produce the background for the peel offs using a mix of the 2 Queue sets to give that "Sunrise over the Serengeti" effect. I have used the Pumpkin Patch set to sponge the card blank & to age the Crumpled Newsprint paper which I have torn & used as  background for my peel off pieces. To enhance the various areas of the stepper card I have punch some "branches" using the ever versatile Maidenhair Fern punch ( you may remember I used it in the Shining Silver theme a few weeks ago where it looked very different) & the Magenta paper. Just to add some finishing touches to our safari theme I have added some Candis which come in some great animal prints.     

Here's a similar design which I made for my uncle to cheer him up on his recent spell in hospital.
