Serenity Two

Well, I realized after I started seeing other answers to the challenge card I showed yesterday, that I had misread the challenge, and it needed to be a different card shape!  Soooo, I re-furbished my card into the center step card you see above!  (Pictures of the original card are at the bottom of this post so you can more easily see what I did:
  • First, I cut off the top of the card front and used it as the center portion of my step card (and added a couple of scraps to finish out the lower edge of the step card), then added a Dazzle border along the bottom of the card.
  • The vertical strip in the inside of the card became one side of the step card, and I scavenged scraps to make a matching one for the other side (adding matching Dazzles).
  • I removed the saying and Dazzles from the bottom of the original card front, centered the sentiment from the inside, and added the Dazzles back along top & bottom of the sentiment, rounded the corners, and had the inside sentiment:

Here's the original card:
