Happy Birthday Side Step Cards- LOTV

Good evening everyone. Tonight, I have a couple of birthday cards to share with you. I use the same stamp image but different designer paper for these cards. It is also my first time water-coloring with distress inks. I enjoyed water coloring these images a lot, it was very therapeutic and addicting.
Each card measures 7"(W) x 5"(H) including the tree diecut. The LO is a double side step card, the right step is 1/2" narrower than the left side. The image is Top Chef from LOTV. The bear is so cute and the BBQ looks so yummy :^)
I did some top stitching on the image panel and DP. The DPs are Basic Gray and Magnolia. Dies I used are Memory Box(tree), Magnolia DooHickey(grass, fence, lace border), Spellbinder and Stampin'Up(button). I used the same DPs to decorate the inside of the cards.
Both cards are made for family members whose BDs are coming up in September. Hopefully we still have lovely sunny weather in September for a nice BBQ.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a good visit.
I wish to ener my card in the following challenges:
