Rogue Redhead Rebel Challenge #3

Hello lovelies, I've finally gotten some time to play!  As some of you know, my kids go to a year-round school, and they have been tracked out for the last week..... you'll note, I haven't crafted in a week.  Coincidence?  I think not!  Anyway, I decided to play along with the Rebel Challenge over at Rogue Redhead Designs.  This time, the challenge is to "Think Outside the ATC."  We are to let some feature of our ATC break out of the 2.5 x 3.5 inch boundary. 

For my ATC, I used some Prima paper and the lovely little swinging children from the Relish Reading plate.  Colored them with Copics and let them "swing" from a diecut branch.  My "outside" element is the sun, which is an image from the Floriculture plate, punched out with a Martha Stewart punch that fits it perfectly.

I hope you'll have time to play along with Rebel Challenge #3.  You have until October 9th to link up your creation, you can use any products you'd like (you don't have to use Rogue Redhead stamps, but we'd love it if you have some!), and.... one lucky participant will win a $15.00 US voucher at the RRD Etsy store!  Oh yeah, some of this vintage goodness could be yours. Sounds fun, eh?  :)

(P.S..... special thanks to Linda of My Happy Place... I borrowed the cute little easel she sent me that usually holds her beautiful mini canvas on my desk.... it's perfect for taking photos of ATCs!  Thanks, Linda x!)

Thank you so much for your comments recently.
When I see Shar's stamps used by you I always feel warm and fuzzy because of that sense of nostalgia. Beautifully coloured.
Wishes

I have this stamp set so I'm always looking for new ideas! I like how the swing hangs from that leaf.
