Quilled Easter greeting cards

As the Easter is coming up, I would like to show two of my Easter cards with quilling. I often choose the Easter egg to be the main element of my cards, and these ones aren't an exception. The quilled egg on the first card is made of 1/8-inch-wide yellow, orange and red paper strips. In addition to the egg, I used a ribbon bow and the words "Happy Easter!" to decorate this greeting card. The lettering was done by hand using a red felt-tip pen. Size of this card is approximately 4.5" x 6" (12 x 15 cm).
On the second card the central quilled Easter egg is echoed by two simpler eggs on its sides. For this card I combined quilling with punches and paper cutting. The red and yellow paper strips in this case are 1/8" (3 mm) and 1/16" (1.5 mm) wide. Size of the card is approximately 4.5" x 6" (~11.5 x 15.5 cm).
Please, use these cards for inspiration only and do not reproduce them.
I would also like to take this opportunity to wish my female readers a happy International Women's Day. Tons of health, success, love, peace, luck and happiness to you all!
