365 Cards Day 125

Super Sketch Sunday

I know its Monday, its also the 4th of July. I made this card for the Day 125 and primarily for my SSSD June swap in which I had to quill something. All I know how to do is a flower. This was a real challenge since I couldn't find my quilling tool, nor my quilling board or my quilling papers. I used tweezers and my fingers to roll and set each one in the cap of a sample tube of handcream. The first roll dried as I rolled the next. Took me a while. I made some leaves too, but they got lost in the shuffle.
The image is heat embossed using a stamp from the A flower for all Seasons SU set and the sentiment is Printworks collection.

Have a safe 4th of July

So pretty, Joyce! I've never tried quilling, but your flower makes me want to give it a shot. It's so very lovely (love the gemstone centre, too).
