My Paper Crafting Totally Tags n 'ATC's with Glitter

Good morning crafty friends, 
Suzanne of Cricut Crafting Grammy. We are back on  Thursdays  to explore different themes, elements, techniques or embellishments.   This week we are using  Glitter  on our tags and ATC's.  There is no restriction on what tools  are used to create these tags or ATC's.    It could be a die cut machine, punches, stamps, etc.  The sky is the limit.  However if the Design Team uses Digis or SVG's they will be from Paper Crafting World.  
 I hope you will join us each Thursday here at My Paper Crafting for 
Totally Tags n' ATC's.

For my tag I got my Martha on and glittered some chipboard butterflies with MS glitter.  I also glittered the red rose that was on the scrap paper I used for 
my tag.  I added a little twine for the tie.

Here is an interesting definition from Wikipedia on ATC's.
Artist trading cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern trading cards baseball cards, or 212 by 312 inches (63 mm × 89 mm),[small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets.[The ATC movement developed out of the mail art movement and has its origins in Switzerland. Cards are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.), wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc.), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc.) or even metals or cloth. The cards are usually traded or exchanged.
