altered trading cards

i love making altered trading cards, i didn't realize that i have posted one before now. super easy and fun to make. i love mini projects. this one i made with stamps from the angel company. the button is vintage from a garge sale, which i scored at with buttons. i got 3 bags full of buttons for only $1!!!! the background is brown paper that came with a package, that my husband tried to throw away, so now i'm using it in very thing just to prove to him that it wouldn't go to waste. i stamped it with just dream and inked the edges for a vintage feel. then i inked blue, pink and brown on to white card stock then stamp, the tea cup, lady, and flowers. the orange paper in the middle is a library book card which is inked with brown. the paper under is instructions from a 8mm projector that my husband got a the same garge sale i got the buttons at. i don't think he knows i swipped the instructions and have cut them up :). get out there and make an atc. i have another one for you  tomorrow. enjoy! lisa!
