New To Blogging

Well hello world! I have a card to share today. This blogging is a new thing for me so bare with me as I stumble along sharing my love of crafting. This is a card that we made in a class I taught. This technique is called the woodgrain technique. Great background for many types of masculine cards. Comments welcomed. If you have any questions just let me know. Bye for now! :)
