My GOLD & SEQUINS Challenge at Studio 75!
Sweet Serenity Artist Trading Cards

How exciting for me that this month it is my turn to host the challenge
 at Studio 75!  YAY!!  You can view my challenge - Challenge 10
 - HERECheck out the full post for all details but the gist of it
 is - USE GOLD & SEQUINS!  So you can make whatever you
 like as long as you have something gold & a sequin or more!!

I made a couple of Artists Trading Cards.  Mine measure 2.5 x 3.5 inches, which
 is their standard size, but I reckon you can make anything any size you like!

I haven't made many ATC's in the past but they are actually really cute to make!
I used a couple of papers from the Splash it! Collection as well as the Studio75
butterfly stamp & a couple of sentiments from the Splash it! Collection too.

Because these little guys are so teeny they are really quick to make, so perfect for you
if you need a quick creative fix & don't have a lot of time on your hands (sadly this is
my life right now!) but I reckon having a small stash of ATC's isn't a bad idea as
they can be used like small greeting cards, with a hand-written message on the
back.  I am sure I will get to use these over Christmas, when we are always
in need of many cards/tags to identify different gifts & our extended
family always enjoy seeing my artwork :) THANKS FOR VISITING!!
