I Love ATC's!

OK, A few months ago if someone asked me to make an ATC the question would have been followed with a "HU?!" and a stupid look. But oh how things can change! ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) are 2.5"x3.5" and are all about personal style. Oh & fun, fun, fun! So when I saw that the challenge at Meljen's was to make an ATC I was all in. Ok, SO with the way my week played out last week, I am all in -just at the last minute! But I am so happy that I was able to have some time at my craft desk tonight. Worth staying up a little late lol!
So here it is:
The best part about an ATC is the small size, so you can use up stuff out of your scrap pile. I colored the image (From Meljen's, I found it on Free Digital Stamps a while back) w/ pencils, used scrap DP, & the sentiment was also cut from a scrap of DP. The red star I cut using one of my old tools in the back of a drawer...my Coluzzle. I had forgot I even had it until I was trying to organize the other day (an on going battle, most of the time it seems like I am losing!) The other star is a Heidi Swap chipboard colored w/ chalks, then I glued a cut out star from the background dp & then glazed the whole thing over w/ glossy accent.
I am also entering on:
