Springtime in Paris ATC

Spring greetings to all - I hope spring is coming to your part of the world soon!

I have a fun ATC project I created for GeckoGalz that I want to share with you.  It was made for their "Springtime in Paris" challenge for the month of March.

I started my ATC by using as my background one of the images on the "Postcard Memories 2" collage sheet set.  The cute little couple featured are from the "Kidding Around 2" collage sheet set.  I cut out around them and attached them atop my background. I added butterfly wings to the little girl, and those came from the "Butterfly Dreams 1" collage sheet set.  I used a sticker with "Paris" on it that I had on hand and that went into the upper left corner.  The pink rose in the upper right corner is from the "A Rose is A Rose 1" collage sheet set.  The little basket of roses in the lower left corner is from "The Little Card Toppers" collage sheet.  And the pretty blue flowers in the lower right corner are from the "Postage 1" collage sheet set.  All the flowers were cut out and attached where shown.  I edged the ATC with gold ink and voila!  A sweet springtime ATC!

I made this card for the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity March 1 - 15th Challenge.  The theme of this challenge is "Anything Goes", so this gives everyone the freedom to use whatever theme they choose.

I love the nostalgic children stamps at Lost Coast so used one of these for this card - Star Halo.  I stamped the image onto white paper and then cut out around the figure, excluding the butterfly wings.  My  background was created with the  Doodle Circles Background Stamp.  I used my Gelli plate and some green paint.  Once my plate was covered with the green paint. I pressed the Doodle Circles stamp into the paint then pressed white paper onto my plate and smoothed it out to transfer the design to my paper.  I used some Distress Inks to add color to the circles.  I affixed my stamped image onto the background, then stamped the wings directly onto the background paper so it looks like the wings are transparent.  I stamped the sentiment - PLAY - from Carmen's Veranda with black ink on white paper and cut out around it, attaching it as shown.  And there you have a fun and bright card!
