ATC Challenge for Cardz 4 Galz

Good afternoon, and a Happy New Year 2017!

My friend, Donna, urged me to enter the Cardz 4 Galz ATC challenge.  Since I love to make and give away my ATC's, and I am tired of working on Christmas cards, I decided to make some of those cute little cards.  They are my favorite thing to make, I think.

Here is the fruit of my labors:

You can click on the image for a closer/larger look.  I had some backgrounds that I had made with my gel plate, and they made the perfect backdrop for the cards.  Most of the stamps used were Dyan Reavely stamps.  The flowers were die cut from other backgrounds that I had made, and the butterflies were punched from the waste, so nothing was really wasted.    I used some of the Nuevo Crystal Drops for texture and the flower centers.  

As some of you know, I give these to my favorite waitresses with their tip, and they look forward to receiving them to see what I have come up with.

So, that's my entry for the Cardz 4 Galz ATC challenge.

I'm hoping we get some cooler temps soon.  We had a record 86 degree day on Tuesday. That's just not right for January.  

 Inky hugs!
