Marie Antoinette ATCs

I was so excited to get an invitation last month to join the Marie Antoinette Mail Art group(MAMA).  It is a group of wonderful artists that join together for creative inspiration, encouragement and to swap various mediums of French themed art.  Thank you so much my wonderful girlfriend Lorraine for your recommendation! I just love Marie Antoinette and anything French, and my visit to Versailles in October only took my passion for these subjects to a level of obsession.  (Just ask my husband, who is entirely sick of hearing about this!)

 These ATCs are for the first swap that I have joined, the Rosey Marie ATC swap.  The requirements were to include roses and Marie into an ATC.   I can't wait to see what the other members have created!

A special Bonjour to my Pink Saturday visitors!

Happy Pink Saturday Marti Sweetie...
What a beautiful share. I love the 3 D effect that they both have, the layering is so gorgeous. I love the fringe on the first one. So feminine and romantic.

Marie is so beautifully displayed in both shares dear friend. Thank you for sharing your pretties this morning.

Country hugs and much love, Sherry
