Now that I know that she has received it, I can show you the postcard I made for my friend Margaret (Digital Gran) who is a member of FAF with me.

It is hard to get a good scan of a piece when it has a lot of colors/texture that blends like this. I chose these colors because I knew she liked them and uses them a lot in her art. It is hard to read Happy Birthday, but I didn't want it to stand out from the background.
I can also count this as an example of one way to add texture to a piece of your work. February’s challenge for FAF is creating surface texture using different materials. I used rayon thread snippets, metallic threads and small fabric bits fused together and free motion stitched. Some gold foil was added and tulle was placed over the top; I used the built-in feather stitch on the machine to stitch the edge and then free motion stitched over the rest. Happy Birthday was stitched using the embroidery unit.
