Was it Miss Scarlett?

I made this for the challenge at Wednesday Stamper this week
the Theme is 'GAMES'...

We have this wonderful old 'Cluedo' Game that belonged to Andrew's Grandma
So I scanned two of the game cards to get this gorgeous image of miss Scarlett & the back of the card also... I then scanned the Instructions which acts as my BG..
I used Acme Labels for the 'Was it' dymo look label

Other bits I used are- Stampin Up Print Pattern Stamp, Maria George Crystals, Versa Ink, Brads & embossing Powder oh and ofcourse my sewing machine...

You put a lot of work into the preparation of this, and it certainly paid off. Cluedo will be headhunting you for their ads in future! Great card.
