Hello! I was really motivated to do another slider-style ATC (Artist trading Card) when I came upon the last week of every month challenge on Facebook : "More Than Words Challenges". It is always to do a card, tag or ATC (the challenge this month was to use the word "she") and the contributors do fabulously interesting work. It really was a lot of fun to make something a little different!
