a message of love...

With Valentines Day right around the corner, red and pink are perfectly sweet!
Iralamija is a wonderful source for digital clip art. This 'carte postale' is so very pretty and a little glitter just made it better!
It's always great to use up little bits and pieces I've dumped into my collage box- a scrap of lace trim, the red bubble heart on a tiny jewelry tag and the polka dot paper all found their way onto this card.
My machine stitching has changed over time- I used to be a total perfectionist with every single stitch perfectly aligned and straight as an arrow, but I found I actually liked the 'messy' look of letting the stitches take their own path. Of course I'd never sew a garment like that, but for cards it's pretty fun!
I tied it up with some tea-dyed seam binding, red & white bakers twine and a pearly pink button.

Georgeous! When I look at your creations, the word "confection" comes to mind.

so pretty..and I do find a carefree stitch much more interesting than a precision one!
