MC Feb/13 - Quill Poppy - HB Some People

I saw a quilled flower on Manuela's blog  and was inspired to try making it. I like the way mine turned out. I normally don't do husking which is how these petals were created. Also the flower is more than 5/8" high, so mailing is problematic... Will need to find someone to hand deliver it to. BIG GRIN

I used 3 different stamps to create my background, one of them being gg designs, 3 poppies on the lower right.

And I'm using a quote and sentiment stamp from Quietfire Design.

Anyway, to see more details and descriptions, just click on card image and enjoy
