Hello Bloggers

Hope you're all having a good day!  It's raining here at the moment but I heard somewhere that we are supposed to be having a heatwave over the weekend!  I'll believe it when I see it!

I've just bee round to your fabulous blogs commenting so now it's time for my own post!

The card I'm posting today I made with my ACL class about 2 years ago! 

It was made using the Bookatrix Board.  I think that the Burgundy and Gold is quite an effective colourway.

My class enjoyed making this card and found it a challenge!

Hope you like it!
