'A Village Mystery' my typewriter stepper card.

 Hello folks!  I hope you managed to tune in to Sheena's shows on Create and Craft yesterday.  Especially the final hour where presenter Stephanie Weightman really took her time to show as many samples as possible.  Maybe you saw my mug shot that I stick on the back of all my samples?  Steph turned one of my cards over to show my photo to the cameras.... it did make me chuckle!  I think photo labels on the back of cards should become really popular.  Such fun!
 I had fun making this stepper card. The papers are from an old Kanban kit that I inked the edges with distress inks.  The typewriter stamp and the sentiment are from Sheena's 
I die cut a tag and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment using gold embossing powder.  With the addition of the beautiful sheer ribbon, a little curl back of the typewriter paper and some brown gems my card was complete. 
Ciao for now!!

Brilliant card Sandra. I did catch a bit of Sheena's show but I must admit, as soon as I see SW is the presenter, I turn TV off. Now if it was Leonie, I would have been glued! Hugs, Carol S.xx
