A fabric postcard that features little fabric collages

I used some of these little fabric collages that I created a while back to embellish this fabric postcard.  I started with a yellow fabric rectangle and positioned the little collages on - four on top and four on the bottom.  I stitched them down using a single line of stitching in yellow thread.  I added an unfolded length of black bias trim in between and stitched it into place as well.  I trimmed a little quote from a sheet of fusible fabric that my sister printed for me on her inkjet printer.  I fused it into place over the black bias tape and then hand stitched a flower embellishment to the right of it.   The embellishment combines little green silk leaves, a red silk flower with a yellow button center.  Next, I embellished all the squares by stitching on some fun pieces - a peach silk flower with a yellow sequin center held in place with  yellow seed bead, an little silver leaf embellishment, a little red button, a plastic butterfly embellishment, a white sequin flower with an orange flower sequin center held in place with a yellow seed bead, a silver metal butterfly charm, a little red heart sequin and a gold star sequin layered with a little red flower sequin held in place with a yellow seed bead.   I created a backer and stitched it to my front then couched the black fiber braid to the outside edge using a zig zag stitch on my sewing machine.  I am really happy with how this one worked out and the little fabric collages are just how I wanted them to look.  It is off to my partner for the birthday swap.                  Therese
