January Blissful ATC Swap

This month was "snowflakes and white"
for the prompt.  Of course I only needed
to look out the window for inspiration.
I made this ATC with different fabrics,
tiny pearls and  metallic embroidery 
threads. Had fun making a little envelope 
for it using music papers and wax papers.
Stitched up the sides and it has a button closure
Stamped a sweet bird on it and off it went to Dee Dee.
I received this in the mail today from DeeDee.
It is absolutely gorgeous and has a three D effect.
She explains it on her blog better than I can if 
you wish to check it out. It's her Jan. 13th post.
That is where I stole the picture as my camera
was not cooperating. Hope that's OK DeeDee. :-)
She is one very talented gal and I treasure her ATC.

Hi Sharon:
I told DeeDee I loved her ATC when she posted it on her blog, and now I get to tell you how wonderful yours is, too!

I just love being a participant in the Blissfull group. There are so many diverse talents, and the variety of interpretations on our themes is truly inspirational.

DeeDee is going to love receiving not only your card, but the lovely packaging you created for it, too!
Well done, my friend.
xoxo
Donna
