I'm still thinking of ATCs I can make with a bird theme for my trade in May. Then I saw one of my embossing folders (Sizzix) and thought it would be perfect. I didn't want to color them, but I also didn't want to leave them the white of the cardstock. Then I decided to gild them, and as it happens, one of the challenges was for Metallic. Then I looked at some of the other challenges and incorporated them as well. This is the result.
