Fun Fri~ Daughter's 2022 Bday Card

Inspiration for her card:
A picture I took of the farm view in front of her home.
Her husband and son were just to the left of the screen

I love making cards.
My desk top becomes my palette of fabric scraps,
and my scissors became my paint brush.
LOTS of trial and error.

The figurine was free hand cut.
Her son wears a cowboy hat.
Really there is organization to my palette.
Use of painter's tape instead of pins to hold the card in place for stitching.

An addition to the inside
before I wrote a personal Happy Birthday note.
Decided to leave the oversized sun rays. 
Folded them down when I put the card in the envelope.

Shared on Sum of Their Stories: Handmade Monday.  A great place to visit.
