Quilled Rosh Hashanah cards, final

Quilled apple, bee and honeycomb

It's time to wrap up making Rosh Hashanah greeting cards for this year. Seems like I've made enough for all friends and family :) This is the third and final set, the previous two can be found here:

Well, the one at the top isn't too much original. Apples (how to quill apples) with honey are traditionally eaten on Rosh Hashanah eve. Size: 3 1/8 x 3 1/8 inch (8 x 8 cm).

Dove with olive branch

As for this card, I haven't used the motif of a white dove carrying an olive branch yet. No need to explain that this is a symbol of peace. Size: 2 1/2 x 3 1/8 inch (6.5 x 8 cm).

Quilled cat with apple

No, cats are not a symbolic food :) This card is for our neighbors, who keep a gorgeous gray male cat they love so much, that I decided to feature him on their greeting card. To make the look of this card more appropriate to Rosh Hashanah, I also added the traditional apple and pomegranate (the latter used as the base). This greeting card is 3 3/8 inch (~8.5 cm) high.
