House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #130

Hey hey all you House-Mouse Lovers!
We have a fun challenge for you today over on the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog:

ATC Turn-About. Take your ATC and turn it into a card creation. Easy Peasy, right? Get all the challenge details, along with prize info and some fantastic design team samples HERE.

If you are not familiar with what an ATC is, let us explain; It is a miniature work of art with an approximate size of (2 ½ X 3 ½ inches), or, (63 mm X 89 mm). It is small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. The ATC movement developed out of mail art and has its origins in Switzerland. These mini cards are produced in various media and usually traded or exchanged rather than sold. The sky is the limit in this fun art. So give it a go!!! :)

The ATC I used on my card is actually one I made 3 years ago.

 I did recolor a few areas and added some glitter accents along with a twine bow.

The flag banner is made from StampinUP! stamp set and punch.  Then some extra pieces of popcorn added.

So go grab an old ATC....or make a new one....and lets see what YOU come up with!
 Have a micey nice day!

Hi Lori,
This is gorgeous, I love your image and the design is fabulous. I used to do ATC but then people seemed to stop doing them, then so did I.
Happy crafting
