It has been a busy week so far. I have a sick child at home so I have been a little preoccupied. Here is a card that we made at one of the classes I run. It is so simple to do but looks lovely. I decided to challenge myself and use pumpkin pie card stock. This card I partly CAsed from Marelle Taylor, she does some lovely cards. I think it looks nice especially with a little bit of bling!! That is one of Stampin up's new rhinestone brads. I will be back with more soon...
