You're Aces With Me!

It's Wednesday, so it's that time of the week again... mid-week inspiration for From The Heart Stamps.
This week i'm using the image Birdbrain Card Sharks...

This is the card that my Son gave to my Dad for Father's Day.
It's been a while since I made a stepper card, so I decided to give it a go. I'm thinking it would be a good idea to buy myself a stepper card die so that it's all ready to decorate and I don't have to think about measurements. But then I suppose if you do it yourself by hand then you can alter the size of the card itself as well as the 'step' sizes too.
I coloured my image using promarkers, colouring the card backs similar to the paper that I chose, which is from a very old paper pad (probably 6 years or more) by Sizzix, called Little Sizzles, Country.
The sentiment at the bottom is one of ELEVEN that you get with the image.
'Grandad' was stamped using a stamp from a Fizzy Moon set (All About Him).
