I created this card for my mother-in-law's birthday. Water-color paper and colored construction paper were used for the base. I used patterned scissors, a gel pen and paper punches to decorate the base. The purple gel pen was used also for the lettering.
The quilled flower was made using hand-cut paper strips 1/8"(3mm) wide. I placed a seed bead in the center. I'd like to thank this quiller, an online friend of mine, for the idea of curly petals.
