Here is my second Marie Antoinette Artist Trading Card

Marie Antoinette ATC made from the March 2013 Artist Trading Card Kit of the Month.  I didn't use the floral frame, the printed flowers, or the pearl ribbon.  I just wanted to come up with something different then my first Marie Antoinette that I posted earlier.  Just another example of what can be made from our ATC kit.  Enjoy!
