This card is made from one of my submissions for an ATC swap on SCS. An ATC, or artist trading card, is a small card the size of a baseball card. You can read more about them here. The swap I participated in was a "bling" swap. I like to use ATCs to make full cards, as I did here.
I'm not sure if you can see it, but there is Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the cupcake frosting, and on the dots running across the ATC, behind the scallop and the flowers. I used an Essential Glue Pad to stamp the dots and then sprinkled on the glitter.
I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder from Cuttlebug to emboss the pink panel and decorative scissors to make the scalloped border. I finished it off with a piece of Soft Sky ribbon tied to a flower ribbon slide from SU!
This card is for my great niece's 3rd birthday. She is the sister of Benjamin, the recipient of the keepsake from my last post. I'm sure she will enjoy her birthday after all of the festivities for her brother! Thanks for visiting!
