Second Card Completed

With this card I couched some fashion yarn, left over from a jumper, into a heart shape on the foundation fabric.  Once this was completed, I covered it with some ivory chiffon and backed with some batting, then did two lines of running stitch.  I trimmed the batting and then stitched the front and back of the postcard together.

Now this  postcard is ready to post, I just have the wide cushion to complete and that will be my exchange pieces done  for a little while.  Time to catch up on some of my other stitching.
