a little felt ATC

I can show you this now, as it's safely in it's new home...
the most delighfully Gorgeous Mel and I decided to do an ATC swap together,
not any swap you see.... it was to be a FELT ATC swap....
so here is my Artist Trading Card for Mel...
this really was a smiley project,
you know those ones where you smile the whole time you make something...
My title for this little softie ATC is...
"Home should be as Warm & Cozy as a Quilt"

Aww, Gillian, I love your little felt ATC! Thank you for visiting my Blog. The trombones came from my Clip Art - I just searched for 'trombone' within Word via clip art. I can try e-mail it to you if you cannot find it.

thanks girls for all your gorgeous comments, this is an answer for Jaki.
I did all of the applique & embroidery just through felt, the background felt was larger than the intended size as felt has a habbit of stretching. then I adhered the felt ATC to a lightweight piece of card, and quilted it. This is when I cut the ATC to size (21/2"x31/2")and did a couple of rows of stitching around the outside edge, then I taped the lightweight card to cardstock, and repeated the outside edge stitching.. to secure the whole thing together..hope that makes sense. :O)
