Quilling Purple Flowers Farewell Card for Raena

Who's playing Powerball this weekend? $600 mil?! We can dream, right? :D
Today another work study has left us. We're always sad to see each and every one of them go, but let's face it...this was only the beginning and there are a lot of places for career growth elsewhere.

I made her a farewell card. It's one of the more delicate looking cards that I've made recently. I don't know why I feel that way. It may be the lace fabric ribbon! It's on a pretty shimmery pinkish-colored cardstock base by Bazzill. There's a lot of chalking for the background, but the 2D flowers and pot were stamped. Flower centers were dotted with liquid pearls. It may be a bit hard to see, but the rim of the pot is made from 2 cut strips of paper using edger scissors. The petals of the quilled flowers were shaped into an arrow-like shape. Then finished off with rhinestones.
I really like this one. I hope you do too!
