  Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. Today's card was inspired after taking a class over on the Altenew Academy site, and this class was called 'with a twist'. It was all about creating cards with a twist, and this card was inspired by creating a unique shaped card.
