Smile! Quilled Sunflower Photo Frame Card

This card has a slit that acts as a picture frame! The card further crosses boundaries between the scrapbooking and card making world by sharing the most essential thing in most scrapbooks--photographs!

I think this is the ultimate in personalizing a card and that is sticking in your own picture! I really, really tried to make the sunflower look as realistic as possible with the petals being places in more 3D looking positions. It is quilled with 4 different colors of yellow and brown quilling paper and the flourishes feature 4 different colors of yellow and orange. The center of the flower is also a bit pearlescent from going over it with shimmery watermark ink. The word, "Smile," is a rub-on sticker and the strip of brown (it is more of a pinkish-brown) was made using double-sided glue tape and Martha Stewart glitter. The whole interior is blank, so there is a lot of space to write a lovely message! P.S. That picture is of me (left) and my best friend, Jen, since 1st grade (right) on Thanksgiving 2011. :)

I am entering this card into 365 Cards' Day 15 - All Smiles. I believe our smiles go well with the whole concept. lol Go check out all of the other lovely cards made for this challenge! :)
