i had been coveting this paper collage piece from Colette Copeland and finally made the purchase. if you are not familiar with her work- click on her name to visit her blog; and here is a link to her etsy store.
(in the photo above- off to the right, Colette included a few postcards for me as well. the heart is part of my stamp set- DreamThicket which is available at PaperBag Studios.)
i love the photo of the mom and baby and the red velvet piece sewn and hanging from the photo. the postcard immediately below is written in french.
i think part of the charm for me at least is the fact that she had sewn all of the paper together.
