ATC Valentine and More


This all started with the making of the ATC card .The litlle ATC with the monkey image was so adorable I just had to make a home for it; a criss cross card seemed like a good place to start.  The ATC was then too small for the 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inch card (rats - should have made a smaller card I guess).  Solution; make a little tag from left over scrapes and  put them all together in the criss cross card.   Now I just have to find a permanent home for the trio. Hmmmm!
Challenges:
Bugaboo: create an ATC  quote ' a miniature work of art, a single-sided canvas of only 2.5" x 3.5" (about the size of a baseball card). The challenge is to make a card front, but on a smaller scale. . . ;)'
Creative Belli - Letter P and use old or forgotten embellishments. I chose the colour PINK and my two tiered hearts (the pink and red ones with the little pink pearls) were made about a year ago (maybe more) and have sat forgotten in a stash box.
