Step Card Yet Again

Hello peeps,

Hope you all are having great crafting time. I just managed to make a card yesterday night. Due to time constraints, I do not craft daily. I wanted to enter for few challenges , so made a card combining these challenges. It is a three step card. I made this type of folded card one year back also.You can check it here.
Though I work mostly with soft colours. But this time tried to go for some brights. Went for three pattern papers lying in my stash for a year.
I wanted to add few things made out of punches in my card and what can be better than a step card to showcase all together. So here's the card -

The tree trunk is handdrawn and handcut. I have used heart punch to make leaves of the tree. The heart doily in the second step is  made with a corner punch. The swans are made with heart punch. The neck of swan is handcut and face is made with stampin up bird punch. I have distressed heart with SU lucky limeade dye ink and Swans with Memento Dandelion dye ink. The sentiment is a freebie I found on net,

Here's another view -
