"Papa's Garden" Father's Day Card

I made this card for my dad for Father's Day; all of his grandbabies call him Papa so as soon as I saw this title on the Freshly Picked cartridge, I knew what I wanted to create. This a a 5"x7" step/ladder card; I couldn't find a tutorial that I liked so I guessed at the measurements and they seemed to work out just right. 

The shape behind the gnome is cut from the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge and everything else is cut from the Freshly Picked Cricut cartridge. 

I used lots of inking and foam in order to give this card plenty of dimension. 

I finished off the inside of the card with a small piece of cardstock so I could write a small note. 

Products used:
Cricut cartridges: Freshly Picked and Elegant Edges
Peachy Keen Everyday Character Face Assortment

This is gorgeous. I love the colors and the papers you used. Lots of dimension. I also love that just because you made a "mans" card you did not get all caught up in the fact that it had to be all Masculine. It is from children so it is fun and playful! So this is funny because I made one of these last week. Totally could not find a tutorial of dimension I liked. So I made my own too. Just have to get it all embellished now:) Thanks for the great inspiration and joining us at Whimsical Wednesday!!!

Hi Faith,
I am not sure if this was for my challenge--I didn't see it listed?
So I'm not sure if this is it, or another one?
It's super cute!
