ATC for City Crafter Challenge

This week at City Crafter Challenge Blog, they are having an Artist Trading Card (ATC) challenge. ATCs are small 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 cards that artists/crafters share with each other as sample of their work. I wanted mine to reflect me so this is what I came up with:


I love blue and white as you can probably tell from my blog colors. My kitchen has blue and white dishes and deorations all over the walls. This basket is one of my favorites.


It sits on the counter. (obviously it does not hang from the wall :)

The dishes that we use are blue and white too.

I LOVE them! The colors I like and flowers :)

So you can see why I chose the colors. There is also a "J" on the card for Jani. It is hard to see in the picture because I have so much stuff going on with this little card.


Of coarse it would not be complete if it did not have flowers so I added 3 tiny little flowers and put rhinestones in the center.


There is one piece of solid colored blue paper on the card. Everything else started as white cardstock and I inked them (TH Distress Ink: Wild Honey & Chipped Saphire)

For the blue and white embossed piece, I put Distress ink on my embossing folder then embossed it with Cuttlebug's Victoria embossing folder.

Here are the cut files for the bird, small leaves, and tiny flowers. I copied these birds from a picture so I can't really say that I created this file.

Hope you enjoy and head over to City Crafter Challenge Blog (where I am entering this ATC)  to see all their lovely creations. It is full of inspritation.

I love blue and white, too. I'm getting ready now to change my kitchen from the OLD pink roses, to blue and white something. Thanks for this inspiration, and your great files!
