Stepper Card

I decided to make a stepper card of slightly different dimension from those which I have made previously. With this, of course comes the problem of working out the measurements.
I cut a piece of card to DL size and discovered that it was 20 cms from one side to the other measuring across the fold. This made the sizes of the steps really easy to calculate.
I scored on the 2cms, 4cms, 7cms, 10cms and 15cms. Perfect!
If anyone would like a tutorial on how I did it, I'll see what I can do. 
I used my Stampin' Around wheel to make the houses for the village and added the lorry and the flowers from the Loads of Love set, also by Stampin' Up.
Coloured with neutral shades of Promarkers, I rather like the effect.
