BABY ATC Turnabout for House-Mouse & Friends MC

Hello Crafters!   Just stopping by to remind you to play along with us this week at House-Mouse & Friends MC Blog - found HERE!  We are making ATC Turnabouts.  Our awesomely talented Teamie Stacy chose the fab theme.

This is my take with a Baby Themed card....

INK: Memento Tuxedo Black, COPICS & Liquid Metal Markers (to color in Bear Pin)
PAPER: SU Blue, White Heavy CS
Accessories: Spellbinders Border and Baby Dies, Stickles GOLD & Blue Glitter Glues, Creative Memories Circle Punches, Baby Bear Broach Pin, Ribbons, Rhinestones

If you are not familiar with what an ATC is,  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!!! :)

For added inspiration, here is a Link to an older Mousey challenge in which we also featured Designer's ATC samples. Check it out HERE --> HM&F MC Challenge, HMFMC101.
