Memory Box - Alpine Trees
Lawn Fawn - Wish Upon A Star sentiment
Dry Embossing 
Distress Oxides - Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Chipped Sapphire, Black Soot

This was my first attempt at an Artist Trading Card. For it being so small I spent quite a bit of time on it. Mainly staring at the white piece of paper. It's rather simple but I was pleased with it. The black and silver star paper is just a background to photograph the ATC and is not attached.

Lavinia Stamps – Woodland Hares, Hanging Lanterns, Fairy Foragers
Rubbernecker Stamps – Sentiment
Embossing powder

I had already made the background with the Brushos. The last thing I did was add the sentiment. It didn't come out as well as I would have liked. It's a homemade item that sometimes comes with flaws.
