ACEO Awards, Part II

I received my first ACEO award in January, and what a thrill that was! I won 1st place for my entry Secret Garden, and interpretation of my favorite book. The contests are somewhat unbiased, judged by the number of unique eBay bidders. Thank you bidders!

Here is a view of the closed card:



And here it is opened up:



The inside is a "cheater" fabric, carefully chosen to represent the inside of a garden. I embellished it with thread painting and hand embroidery. The door is timtex, enclosed between two pieces of fabric, stitched and painted for a distressed look. The door is held on with jewelry "hinges". Note the little key at the bottom!
