ATC for Art Lottery

The theme for the Sept. Art Lottery on NGS is "flourishes & swirls". So there was a bit of method to my madness when making my worksheet wonder earlier today. Here's the section I cut out to use for the ATC I'm working on. I love the punched holes in the side and have to incorporate them in the piece (sorry for the blurry picture).
To make the holes more prominent and to add more blue to the piece, I ran a bit of blue metallic foil under the punched holes:
I choose an image I liked, I stamped bits of the same flourish on it with Lumiere paint:
Before adding the image, I stamped the same flourish with the same Lumiere paint over the background. Added a red ribbon, black paper to make the image stand out, and a flower.
I like the quirkiness of this ATC. Maybe this month, I'll win the lottery and will be able to keep it : )
