The next card is from Dotti in Nevada. We had swapped before but this time she challenged me to a private swap. She chose the theme "Strings and Things" and has carried it of wonderfully. The colors are fantastic. She states that the swirl in the middle is a pipe cleaner covered with strings. There are sparkles and ribbon and a that face I have been seeing on Kate's blog.
In return here is a picture of my card to Dotti. I took her literally and used strings left from a days worth of sewing. I also added some silver star sequins for my "things", but some netting over it and fmq all over with several different threads. The background was a piece of hand dyed my friend Glenda I end made many years ago.
