Quilled Sunflowers card :)

Oh Yeah...Its been a loooong time since i quilled. After my Quilled Dedication frame for my granny, this is the card in recent times i made.

These quilled elements were made some 10 days before and just assembled today to form sunflowers, leaves, tendrils and twines. Happy to share since its completely made using Quilling Needle only and the flowers are made with 1.5mm width strips and distressed on tips with rich cocoa momento ink. Fringed flowers are distressed with wildhoney DI on edges. For an added interest, made some multistrips scrolls.

The background is made by scoring a Kraft CS on scoreboard randomly and distressing again with rich cocoa momento ink to give a wood bg and matted on sandcolor CS. And the this mounted on a black CS whose surface is vertically scored to create little texture to the card.

Wrapped Raffia around card, added a wooden button and a sentiment banner to finish the card. Hope you like it!

very pretty Sathya, Your fringing looks amazing . The Sunflowers look delicate using such thin strips and the distressing does so much. Love you neat fringing too.

I can't believe I missed this gorgeous card! How was it to work with such thin strips? Are they hand-cut? The sunflowers look so beautiful with their distressed petals, it adds so much dimension to the whole composition! I like the background, too! I like everything! <3
