An ATP Swap! :)

Hi All! :)
School is in session and I'm hoping to get back to some creating!! (I better find some time because I have a showing in the Gary Farrell Winery tasting room in November!!)
Here is my latest creation. An "Artists Trading Pin" for a swap over at the Arttechniques Yahoo Group. I used some "starts" I had from my Tim Holtz class a few months ago. I "jazzed" them up a little and ....... voila! a pin! :)
The flower is made from Grunge Paper, a button, a little wire, flower die cuts, Glimmer Mist, Radiant Rain, Distress Inks, Archival Inks, and rubber stamps. The butterfly is Grunge Board, Distress Inks and Stickles, and some Mica Magic Ink.
Hope my partner enjoys her pin!!!!! :)
