First Attempt at ATC's

I mentioned in another post that I have joined a beginners ATC swap. Here is my rendering!

The pic is of the two ATC's I made and the little card to the right is the inspiration. There is a little story that goes along with this card. And, I'm going to tell that story:
This past Saturday I cooked a B-day dinner for my mom and ex-mother-in-law. Mother handed me this little clear plastic bag full of paper goodies. It was the cards that were given with the gifts when I was born. I have to remind you, I'll be 49 in April. These cards are in very good shape and have some very cute "vintage" pics. Wait...they can't be vintage...I'm only 48! Any way, I scanned the card and cut out the cute little rain baby and used ink and alcohol in a spritzer on photo paper. I added the rainbow ribbon and some crystal stickles for raindrops.

Rainbowbaby 1of2 and 2of2 - These will be valuable when I die!

What a wonderful gift to receive ... I wish I was more sentimental and held onto things for my children ::sigh::
