ATC Wacky Wednesday Challenge on 3/4/09--Time Traveler

Oooooo, have you ever found yourself trying a challenge that is totally and completely out of your comfort zone? Yes, I thought so :-D Sherry Cheever is on the design team for Rubbernecker Stamp Company and posted a challenge on Wednesday to create an ATC (never have made one and looking over the rest of the design team's pretties, this is probably my last attempt :-D Reason #1 that I wasn't comfortable is because it's much smaller than my normal card size (if it's too large, I'm sweating, too :-D Reason #2, I'm not sure that this is actually an ATC because the time piece overlaps the card. But, I forged ahead and went with my gut instinct, you know, something with fashion and I have plenty of those stamps, such as the Travel bg stamp from Rubbernecker. Mr. Rubbernecker, David Miller, is giving away a 25% discount coupon to 3 participants each week, so check out the site and see what great stuff he has in his store. There are some requirements, such as using a stamp purchased from the company. He also has more incentives to shop, so as soon as you leave here, "click" on over there! Since the "Mike" store in my area doesn't carry very many Distress Inks or reinkers, I get mine from Rubbernecker. Time to give your eyeballs a break and sign off for now, but before you go, thanks so much for stopping by and checking out this ATC.

Stuff I Used:
Stamps: Travel bg (Rubbernecker), 20's Flapper (Alpha Stamps)
Paper: Vintage Cream (PTI), Chocolate Chip (SU!)
Ink: Chocolate Chip (SU!), Scattered Straw and Tea Dye (Ranger from Rubbernecker Stamp Co.)
Toys: Time piece (Heidi Swapp), adhesive half pearls, lace, brad (SU!), window punch (SU!), computer generated sentiment
