Let's Make an ATC

Over @ Our Creative Corner, Rebecca, has another challenge for us this week. The challenge is to not only make an Artist Trading Card (ATC), but to use Cream/Vanilla, White, Kraft, Brown/Black, and one color of choice! Wow! That's a tall (ok, pocket size) order! So, join us in some fun! Here is my entry: (I placed the Rose Red cardstock behind my little ATC, so it would show up in the photography session.)

Rebecca, is a super talented lady, who has some wonderful eye candy on her blog: Ecletic Endeavours . So, if you have a few moments, please stop-by and visit her blog, along with the blogs of the other ladies on the Design Team. It is certain, that you will be inspired from what these talented, and clever ladies can do with paper!
So, an ATC measures 2.3" x 3.5". Its a pretty small 'canvas' to work with. Especially if you are a scrapbooker and are use to 12" x 12" of space. But, broaden your horizons and give it a whirl! I will be posting another ATC tomorrow. These little guys are super fun to work with, and they help me stretch my creativity!
I found this super cute graphic on the Internet. I think she just looks lovely. And who doesn't love a rooster? My pattern paper is from Bo Bunny. The solid card stock is Very Vanilla, Early Espresso and Crumb Cake. The ribbon is Crumb Cake seam binding. I stamped a floral background (Clearly for You, stamp set) on the First Edition DSP, and the 'Happy Easter' is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. The button is from my 'jar o'buttons', so I have no idea who made it, or where I purchased it.
Thank you for looking, and let me know what you think! Getting comments really does make my day! I just love the feedback! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
