How would you like a card step by step tutorial?

Hi, this is Grandma Bonnie, I thought i might share a step by step process of making a card base.  I am using a current sketch from Seems a Little Sketchy found here.

This is the finished card:
These are the supplies needed:
4 x 6 card base
Pink mat 3 7/8 x 5 7/8
Yellow background 3 3/4 x 5 3/4
Pink mat 4 7/8 x 1 3/8
Blue pattern strip 4 3/4 x 1 1/4
Pink pattern strip 4 1/2 x 1/2
Aqua mat 2 x 1 3/4
Pink pattern paper 1 7/8 x 1 5/8
White paper for border 2 x 5 3/4*
* Cut down after punched to 3/8 x 5 3/4
See picture below

Now the step by step by viewing the pictures:
Mat your yellow background paper on the pink mat, the blue strip pattern paper on the pink strip mat and the pink pattern paper on the aqua mat as shown:
Now place all the pieces on the matted yellow background as shown, i add the completed background piece once i've add all of the pieces, then i attach all of it to the card base. (some times i want to add ribbon so that is why i wait to attach it to the card base)
