First of two fabric postcards

I need to do two fabric postcards for an exchange on Stitchin Fingers for next month.  This is the first and will be off to Australia as soon as I can get to the post office.

The postcard has been padded, covered with ivory satin, with a lay of lace on the top.  I cut out hearts from some batting and dark pink fabric, which was covered with cream chiffon. I used a small running stitch to attach it to the base.  I then added the beads around the edge of the heart.

Hopefully, this weekend, I can get the second postcard done and ready to post.

It's a very sweet Valentine's card. You always have such clever ideas.

Very sweet. Will you put this one in an envelope since it has the beads on it?
I've sent fabric post cards before but they were flat and didn't have bead work on them.
