My first ATC - How about a hug?

Hello, friends :-)  Well, I was again inspired by my dear friend, Avril, and I have created my first ATC - Yay!  These little cards are small - 2 1/2 inches x 3 1/2 inches.  What do you think?

I started with a tiny white base and covered it with starry-sky paper.  I stamped the night-time kitty on a punched tag, coloured with pencils, doodled stitching around the outline, stapled a piece of navy ribbon, and affixed to the ATC with foam tape.  I cut the sentiment into a label shape, touched it on my yellow stamp pad to add some colour, and affixed with a pop dot.  Lastly I embellished with four stars and a heart charm tied with twine.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Stamp:  Unfortunately, it has no markings on it - a wood-mounted stamp I got in a lot on ebay years ago.
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • SentimentStampArt Design by Kathryne 
  • Patterned paperFree Craft Downloads (thank you)
  • Coloured pencils:  Prismacolor
  • Black marker (for doodled stitching):  Staedtler
  • Die:  Spellbinders Labels Nine
  • Tag punch:  Marvy Uchida
  • Twine:  American Craft
  • Ribbon, stars, charm:  Dollarama
