Merci with wine

Yes Sir, I like a little wine and baguette.
Merci monsieur, J'aime un petit vin et une baguette.

To start with I smooshed several yellow distress inks to make a spot for him to stand in,  coloured his eyes melted-chocolate colour, then I paper-pieced monsieur's beret, scarf and baguettes.
Washi tape in stripes and dots to go with the paper, which has a faux stitching frame drawn on in white gel pen (it shows up better in real life), and a tiny stamped tag tied on.  The backing paper is a sharp lime green in real life.
