Postcards

This is a set of postcards I made for a swap. We had to interpret a picture of a purple clematis. The picture was taken by one of the members of the group. I used some of my hand-dyed fabrics in the colours of the flower. The stitched white star represents the heart of the flower.
This is the card I'm going to keep...
Update: Michelle is the lady who took the picture of the clematis. You can see the photo here (scroll down a little bit).
Thank you Michelle!

Hi Francoise! I absolutely love these! I'm the one who took the original picture. It's on my blog if you want to let people see it:

Well done. I like the simplicity of the design and particularly the stitching on the white star of the one you're keeping.
