Hello, thanks for your visit. Today we begin a new challenge
A Simple Stepper Card.
Please visit the blog to see the DT's wonderful creations,
plus a link to make  simple stepper cards.
I used the link and found it was so easy. Once I made the
stepper card, then I added the design.
I used papers and toppers from an 8" Graphic 45 book
- Off To the Races.
All were backed with black card to add dimension.
Have fun making your stepper, I look forward to seeing them.
