Valentine's Day Hearts & Diamonds

My first two attempts went in the trash can.... In the first one, I made very bad fabric choices. Glenna's face looked she was going to be sea sick...very bad.

In the second one, the features of her face seemed lopsided. I had tried to place the nose, mouth, etc. just by looking at the picture. In my third attempt, I actually traced her facial features on clear vinyl and used it as an overlay to fuse the pieces in the correct location.

So here is my third postcard...and the…
