I was able to use the hardware (washers), button and raw cardboard for this one.
The card is a 6x6 card,
printed paper is from the Weathered and Worn DCWV stack
I used some AC white paper, unknown tan paper 
yellow and black cricut vinyl and chrome shelf liner
the patterned paper on the front is distressed with a good ol kitchen knife.

The ladder is cut at 3 inches with shadow and layers from HANDYMAN
My diva chick is from FOREVER YOUNG, I don't remember the size I cut her (oops) I also took the boots from this cart and just kept shrinking them until they looked like they fit her legs and cut twice out of black vinyl to match her dress (one set was flipped to line up with her legs)

The inside text was welded and outlined using markers and the SONGBIRD cart, the label also came from SONGBIRD, I then colored in the text with a brush tip marker.  I know I could have printed the sentiment with my printer but I really really love the SB font and it welds so well.
