Mystery Challenge Postcards

Art 4 Mail had a Mystery Challenge postcard swap.  Two of these are for my partners, one is for me.  When I signed up, I had to pick 5 numbers between 1-50.  Each number corresponds to a different item that has to be added to the card.  When sign ups closed and partners were assigned, I received an email stating the 5 items/techniques that had to be on my postcards.

My assignments were:

Applique Something - I did fusible appliqué and added some green holly leaves and circles
Add Single Thread Stitching  - I used a green thread to go along with my green holly leaves and did a single line daisy stitch
Add a Sketch - the whole card is a sketch with some green shading in places to match the green holly leaves - perhaps I went a little over board in this section.  :)
Add a Strong Vertical  - I am hoping the green thread stitching, flanked by two black lines, works for this requirement.
Add Something Very Dark or Very Light (or what the heck, both!!) - the muslin background is light, and the black edging surely qualifies as something dark.
