100 pretties

Although I think this is day 97, this is my 100th ATC, because I made four extras one day here.
This one has a fabric paper base, some painted face wipe, a lolly/candy wrapper and some flowers from a bit of braid.  This one highlights the difficulties of free motion stitching an item that is only 2.5 by 3.5 inches.   I knew there was a reason why I should have cut it out AFTER I had done the stitching.  I had nothing to hold on to.

Because this is my 100th ATC, I am going to broaden things a bit and start making leaves as well.  I am a leafaholic as many know and this morning I made this one on water soluble in a hoop.
I had green in the top and black in the bobbin and just decided, that since I did, I would turn it over halfway and continue.
Here it is after the stabiliser is washed off.  I like it.
Since the Tangled Textiles Challenge this round is green, leaves should fit in nicely, although not all leaves are green, lol especially over here.  I saw a gorgeous burgundy one today!  Fodder for Tomorrow?
