Spring Marie ATC Swap

Today I went to a Christmas party, postponed from December because of the weather at the time. And what was the first thing that greeted my eye when I opened the curtains this morning, yes, you've probably guessed it, snow!!!

Fortunately it wasn't enough to keep me at home and the party went ahead as planned.

When I came home I finished off these 4 ATCs for a swap on the Marie Antoinette Swap site which made me feel a bit more springlike as that was the theme. The background used came from the same fabric - paper collage I used for the Artchix Sweetheart ATCs of a few posts back. The Marie images originated from a digital collage sheet and the bird came from the Collage Birds collage sheet from Alpha Stamps. I added 3-D pink roses which is why I had to photograph these cards rather than scan them. The cards were mounted onto watercolour ATC blanks and I had distressed the edges beforehand with a Distress inkpad. Finally pink beads were stitched around the edges as I'm sure Marie must have loved beads just as much as I do!

Snow! I am so glad it wasn't too much.
Your ATCs are gorgeous as usual. I just love how you make them. Each one is so pretty.
