I took my creative direction from #170, which talks about making something unintended out of existing instructions. My favorite instructions are clothing patterns and I have a stash just for crafting with. I haven't made an ATC in a while so that is what it was going to be.
I simply cut a piece of cardstock the size of an ATC and then glued a fun bit of pattern onto it.
Then I added my current favorite Jay-Z quote. I attached it to a greeting card with some gold photo corners so I could store it in my Card Album and most likely trade or gift it in the future.
