2 Challenges in 1

This is my first Artist Trading Card (ATC) and it was very challenging. I had a few redos given I'm used to working on much bigger cards than this 3.5 by 2.5 inch ATC.

I'm entering this ATC in 2 challenges: Tilda and Friends ATC Challenges and on Megastamper. Tilda and Friends will award 3 lucky winners who create with chocolate in mind - colour or edible version - with stamped Tilda images and some are Magnolia's latest - Yipee! Megastamper Bea has had over 50,000 visitors - WOW - on her blog and she's celebrating by offering a chance to win some nice blog candy. Pink is the theme of Bea's challenge so check out her great blog.

Here's the recipe for my first ATC: I used a lot of my favourites here like my favourite Magnolia stamp, Prima Flowers - got both from Phebe at Town Scrapper - cardstock and DP by SU. I stamped Tilda with Brilliance Lightning Black ink on Wausau paper. The Chocolate Chip and Purely Pomegranate CS as well as the Berry Bliss DP is all by SU. I added the ribbon from Michaels, Prima Flowers and a partial saying from High Hopes. I paper pieced Tilda's dress with the Berry Bliss DP as well and coloured the rest of her in using Copics.

Well, this is it for posting this weekend. I've got to finish up the prep for Easter Sunday lunch and the Egg Hunt plus clean the house and do laundry....etc. It'll all be worth it to see the kids' faces when they find the eggs and open them. Have a good one!
