MC July/14 - Quill Be Yourself - HB

I was in a mood yesterday to do some quilling and wanted to make more of those combed grass type leaves and the double strip leaves... Made both. Then put it together. Was amazed at how quickly it came together.

I side folded my white card (4.25"w x 5.5"h). Colored the edges with Distress dirty green sponge. Layered a piece of white Ruche cardstock leaving a scant border all around and adhering a piece of green Sari ribbon.

Adhered my quilled elements, using the quilled grasses as leaf stems... I like that idea. Added some of the flowers I had made a while back.

Stamped the sentiment on another piece of cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx. Cut close and then used a large oval punch (McGill) to shape it. Sponged some Distress dirty green around the edges. Adhered it off the edge of the card.

Die cut the ladybug (eCraft Designs) and colored it with Prisma colored pencils.

On the inside stamped the "Garden Delights" oval using Distress mini pads ("Mustard Seed", & "Mowed Lawn"), all over with the yellow and then here and there with the green. Misted with water and stamped. Stamped the sentiment with the black.

Quote/sentiment stamps are by Quietfire Design.
