Earlier this week I posted about the Autism Awareness challenge over at OSAAT, I Did it Creations and The Crafty Pad. If you missed the post, you can find it here. As promised, here is my card.
The red, green, blue and yellow jigsaw pieces are the official Autism Awareness colours/symbol. I have had the graphics collection used for this card for ages, and I can't remember (or find out) where I purchased it from! This is my first pop-out stepper card (sometimes also called a staggered fold card) and I'm really pleased with it.
If you look closely, the girl's dress also has the tiny jigsaw pieces on it, as do the flowers and balloon.
I added a few matching gems and have layered up the pictures to complete this card......

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
OSAAT: Challenge #30 Cameron's Challenge
I Did it Creations Challenge:  Challenge #21 Special Event for Autism Awareness
The Crafty Pad: An Extra Special Challenge #88  'Rainbow Themed'

Hi again Ali - I thought I'd put you out of your misery - this collection was available from Trina Clark at digiscrapkits (Blessed Hope - Autism) - I've just had a look but I can't find them anymore so they may well have been discontinued now. :(
