I take part in a lot of swaps. There's something about being given a particular theme and asked to create that brings out the best in my inner artist.

Today, I sat at my crafting desk with the intention of making an artist trading card for a swap. The theme was simple: glitter. I love glitter, and I knew I wanted to use it in a number of different ways.

So this was born:

Can I just tell you how much I love this ATC? The colors, the glitter, the charm, the ribbon... they all speak to me. I find the end result absolutely inspirational. So much so that I'm considering keeping it instead of sending it out into the world. That means I'd have to make a different ATC for the swap, but it would be worth it to keep this little beauty around a little while longer.

    ATC's are awesome and this one captures my attention because there are so many things on there that I love. Vintage suitcases are the best and who doesn't love a glittery arrow? Very well done!!

  5. Donna - Thanks! I'll be sure to visit.

    Dolly - So glad you like it! I thought those embellishments worked really well together, too. :)
