first ATC


This is for my youngest daughter, Lauren's, birthday....Dec 10. She will be 19 this year. A faery celebrates with her flower scepter and crown, and her friends, the Cat and the Sun, join in the festivities. There is a background of German, which fits right in, as she is taking German at UNC, and loving it...maybe she can translate for me? My printer is almost out of color ink, so it came out this light pinkish-sepia tone....I like the effect.

The backing is a piece of foam board- I can never throw away the scraps, and now have a reason to use them. There is a piece of tulip fabric covering it, to remind her that Spring will come, and with it, the warmth.

The back has a nice piece of green paper covering the seams of the folded-over fabric, and made a good place to glue the 'Celebrate' hearts, as well as the large heart we all signed in.

I think she will enjoy it.

Not sure if this is how to do it, but I had a good time!
