Votes needed!! Calling All Followers and Friends Of Art of Mine!!!!

Hi All!!

As most of you know I have a real passion recently
for making ATC's aka "Artist Trading Cards".
Wendy and Debbie over at "Blissfull ATC Swap"
put together a Challenge to make a holder for
all of our lovely ATC's that we are accumulating.
We have now posted pictures of our ATC holders
and we All need votes from all of our Followers
and Friends out here in Blogland!!

I made my ATC Wall Hanging from a vintage
embroidered Linen T Towel. I sewed some very fine
white netting over the top and made a total of 21 pockets.
Along the sides I sewed some French satin
ribbon and some pretty cream and pink trim on the top.
Also I made 4 pretty little tabs on top with more
pink satin ribbon and attached the wall hanging
to the shabby white wire holder.
I thought the netting was great to use for the
pockets as it is very sheer to see through but
sturdy enough to hold the ATC's.

September "Leaves" Blissfull ATC Swap and a Blissfull Challenge Vote

Hello My Dear Friends,

I posted the Beautiful ATC that Carol Anne made for me and today she has posted the one I made for now I will show all of you the one I made for Carol Anne.
I tried an experiment with some skeleton leaves I had and wool roving. The leaves are pretty fragile but I thought if I "carefully" felted some wool roving into them that they might stand up to the needle punching, and they did! I also added some Angelina fibers to the wool, each one with a coordinating sparkle of color to each leaf.
I used a gold leaf pen to highlight around the edges of the leaves as well as the edges of the card! Added some beads and viola!!! 
Please go visit The Blissfull ATC site that you will find on my sidebar. We are having an "ATC Holder Challenge". We are all making one of a kind holders for our wonderful ATC's,  the one with the most votes wins the Challenge!! If you like my ATC Holder please put in a vote for mine!!! Thank you!!!
Love to all and Enjoy your Day!!!
