The Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap

I have joined The Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap. 
This card is on its way to Dulcie Horn in the UK.

The Postcard Swap was put together by Beth Kempton of  Do What You Love in association with Coats, the world’s largest supplier of crafting products. 
This event is a global swap of stitched postcard love, where people all across the world make a postcard-sized piece of art using any materials they like. The only rules are that it needs to include some kind of stitching, and it needs to fit with the swap theme. The theme for this swap is CREATE.
You could use any materials you like (paper, ink, fabric, ephemera, ribbon etc) , and put it together anyway you like to make a postcard. You had to include stitches with a machine or by hand. 

I do a lot of block printing when I CREATE so I wanted to incorporate what I CREATE with the stitching portion of the postcard.
Picking colors ….

Deciding on which stock to use.

Thank you for stopping by.
