TMTA

Well, this ATC goes high on the list of difficult ones I've made. I was working with the challenge at Think Monday, Think ATC to create an ACT with a bird and a child. Sounds easy enough, but I just really struggled with this one. Lots of bird stamps, decent amount of child images, but nothing was coming together. In the end, this is what I came up with and I'm happy enough with it. The background consists of distress inks sponged onto my cardstock. The bird is from StampinUp. The little gardener is from Memories of a Lifetime.
