Hi Stampers! Today I am showing you a card I created using the Always An Adventure stamp set and coordinating Outdoor Adventures Framelits Dies. This is the stamp set I will be featuring in our June Mini Session at Create with Connie & Mary. Here's a sneak peek of our graphic showing you snippets of all the combined projects:

 The stamp sets we will be featuring are:
  • Birthday Fiesta
  • Flourishing Phrases
  • Always an Adventure
  • Best Birds
  • Shooting Star
Since I am mentioning Create with Connie & Mary, I decided today's card would be the perfect time to join in on their weekly challenge. Here are the 3 colors for the challenge this week:

And my card:

The framelits were so perfect to use for all the layering in my "Side Step Card Fold". I added layer upon layer of mountains and the other two steps feature the tree shaped framelit:
