Pink Quilled Mini Sunflower Bouquet Card

After the rain comes the sun! Literally two storms in the last two weeks. As with weather, life changes and you'll have the good and the bad. Eventually the sun always comes out. It's important to remember the things you are grateful for when things aren't so great. With Thanksgiving already fast approaching, it has never been a better time to remind yourself of what's most important to you in life so happiness is never far away. I hope you all enjoy your family time next week. :)
This card was made for my supervisor's birthday at work. She is a valued team member who received little appreciation in the past. In addition to the card, we threw her a mini frozen yogurt party last week.

The card is a bouquet consisting of punched leaves, a quilled mini sunflower, 2 mini quilled flowers with quilled centers, and a paper vase which I regretfully did not make darker for contrast. They sit on a dry embossed background with yellow ink dusted on.
Pink vellum creates and extra layer for writing on the inside.
Sentiment is stamped on the vellum.
My supervisor commented on the plain envelope I gave out last time, so I decorated it for her. She mentioned that she keeps all cards and envelopes. This makes me feel less wasteful if I dress it up a bit. 

Enjoy your Tuesdays!
