April Fabric Postcard

I am working to complete my April swaps for my Yahoo groups. I have been experiencing dental problems for the past two weeks so I am a little behind with my swaps. This fabric postcard is for Norma in the Fabric In Altered Art 2 group. I began by doing a machine embroidery. I thought the blue flowers and green leaves looked like spring. I then decided to add some embellishments. The entire card is covered with pink tulle. I encased some little pearls behind the tulle. The pearls actually move around as you move or shake the card. I really like how the card looks rather elegant. This is the first time that I have encased items in tulle on a postcard. I hope they make it through the mail o.k.

Very pretty! What a great idea to use the tulle. I bet it makes it thru the mail just fine.
