MC Aug/14 - Quill Daisies - With Sympathy

My cousin's wife's mother is in Paleo care and I figured I'd better get a card made real quick... I saw this style of daisy (you can see my inspiration HERE) and liked the look so created my own. The centers are Flower Soft. The flower petals are white quilling strips colored on one side with a Distress marker "Antique Linen".

Side folded my white card (5"w x 7"h). Cut a rectangle from some cardstock to use as a stencil and sponged Distress "Pumice Stone" all over then some "Tumbled Glass".

Stamped the sentiment (Quietfire Design) with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Selectively embossed using my hard rubber mallet and the Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" embossing folder.

Adhered my quilled elements.

On the inside I stamped the quote with the black then stamped the daisy image (gg Designs "5 Daisies") a couple times, putting a post it note mask over the quote area. Colored the centers with Prisma colored pencils.

Click on either image to enlarge. Enjoy
