Aces High.

My very 1st foray into ATC cards!

I have joined in the 'I'm playing cards are you' challenge being hosted by Rachel over at Katzelbows. The idea is to make 52 altered playing cards and include jokers if you want. You can use any suit that takes your fancy just make sure you have 4 suits and 13 cards to each suit. I make that 1 card a week for the rest of the year.!! I decided to stick with the playing card theme. Here is my take on the Ace of hearts. I have kept to the standard ATC size of 2.1/2" x 3.1/2" for this one but may well change around as I get more comfortable and bolder.
Made from white card stock, with walnut stain Distress ink around the edges to match the beautiful mother of pearl heart adornment and edged in red thread. So where's the butterfly I hear you ask that I promised on all my projects for 2011?

Well here it is on the back. Simples!!!!

Very elegant, Mrs A, and love the unexpected colour choice plus the negative space butterfly. Hopefully my first Ace will be done later today.

(Haven't forgotten that you asked about the wire twizzler - I have "tidied" and need to remember where I put it!)
