A Little Something...


I have a little something to show you!!
An ATC (Artist Trading Card).

I always have so much fun when I make these little pieces
of Art..

That is what the challenge is this week over at
City Crafter Challenge.
And yours truly is the host this week.





Can you see why I enjoyed putting this together.


The image I am using I got in a little book that I got at
Hobby Lobby..  They have a lot of cool images in it.





I framed it with some gold blue CS.  My back ground paper is from
K&CO..  




The bottom is a frame I cut out on my Big Shot.
Then I used gold embossing powder to make it gold.
And then I added some lace and stitching.
And some little jewels.. 




So there you have it a Little piece of ART..

To get all the details on this challenge or to see what the other
ladies have come up with you can hop on over to
City Crafter Challenge Blog.


There is also a ATC swap going on..  You can get all the
details for the swap at CCCB!  You should join in and trade your
ATC with other talented ladies..


Thanks so much for stopping by..

Hugs, Linda
