First Wednesday Card Club Share2

This is the second card we made at the September meet up of the First Wednesday Card Club.  The ladies enjoyed a lunch of Italian Wedding Soup, Tandoori Garlic and Basil Naan Pizza, and fresh fruit.  AND we had a deliciously light dessert provided by our hostess Rita too!
