The flowers are from a lilac card I did last year and had leftovers... finally using them. I used my finger to spread some "Crystal Ice" Stickles on the petals, then put a dot of Platinum Pearl into each center (you can see the dots in the side view image). I wanted my White Pearl but can't find it... The leaves are a new way for me to make leaves, assembling a bunch of quilled coils into a leaf shape. A bit more work involved, but I like the results, so will continue making these. I also colored one side of the quill strip to give a shadow like look depending on which direction you look at the card. Add the rhinestone flourishes.
Stamped the sentiment (Quietfire Design) onto some white cardstock using Versafine Imperial Purple. Trimmed it down and added the points. Adhered it to a green gauze ribbon mimicking the points. Added a pink toned pearl brad, then adhered to card.
