Quilled Sunflowers and Cheery Lynn Designs

I played again with my Quilling supplies and decided if I turned the teardrop around, it looks like a sunflower petal so that lead to this card.............


Using my Cheery Lynn Designs Japanese Lace and Flourish Frame I die cut the frame out of brown card stock and the flourishes out of green card stock.  I replaced the leaves on the flourish with my quilled leaves.  I had to cut the paper strips for the leaves myself so they are not quite the same size but not bad for a first try.  I added a border die cut using my Cheery Lynn Designs Eyelet Border with Piercings, threading a piece of ribbon through the border.   The sentiment is from Hero Arts stamped onto a circle cut with my new Scalloped Window Stackers.  Some Viva Decor Pearl pen accents and I was done.  Finished size is 5 x 7 inches.

Good grief! Are you kidding me? This is incredibly charming. Love the colors. Love the flowers. Love the ribbon border. Those sunflowers just knocked my socks off! That frame is the perfect finish to this very pretty card.

A lovely blog with lots of interesting designs. You know you can cut your 3mm strips of paper by using a hand paper shredder. I'm sure you should be able to find on in the USA. That's how I cut all my strips to match my fringed flowers and folded paper roses. All the best. Chris Lee (christinelee63@yahoo.co.uk)
