ATC Challenge

Believe it or not, this is the FIRST time I've ever made an Artist Trading Card! Crazy, huh? When Shannan chose this for a challenge, I was a little nervous. I had no idea what to do, so I started with a little piece of white cardstock that I scored a grid on with my Scor-Pal, but never used. Next came the tiny scalloped border. From there, I just colored some flowers from Thankful Blossoms to match, added ribbon for stems and rhinestone brads for centers. Before I knew it, all my "little bits" made up an ATC! So, if you're as nervous as I was about this challenge, try to think small. . .a little bit here, a little bit there. It worked for me!

Want to know how to win $15 in Verve Bucks? All you have to do is play in this Vervalicious challenge with us by creating your own Artist Trading Card! Leave a comment with a link to your project on this post by 12:00 pm (noon) Eastern Time on July 31st, and you will be entered for a chance to win! Using Verve stamps is not a requirement, although it doubles your chance of winning. We will have two winners, one randomly drawn from a pool of all entries, the other will be selected as our favorite from all the projects using Verve stamps. Both winners will receive $15 in Verve Bucks. We will announce the winners later that day. If you upload to Splitcoast, please use the keyword VVPP04 so we can all see your creations! We can't wait to see your creations! Good luck and have fun!
