This is probably the first of rather too many cards this year for 'special' birthdays!
I've layered a peel off greeting on to a couple of punched shapes and added this to the centre of the card with foam pads.
The fringed flowers - yes, actual quilling!!! - are made from 10mm paper in bright colours.
This card was very much cased from the fab Jill over at Paper Daisy - do have a look if you haven't visited before, her cards are fabulous.
I've used a large quilling tool to roll the flowers so there is room for a little seed bead in the centre.
The leaves and tendrils in between are made from a gorgeous new paper from JJ Quilling called Olive Crush which actually contains crushed olives (or residues in some way from olives). Apologies if I haven't entirely got my facts straight but either way the paper is just so scrummy!
There could be a range of these recycled papers so I look forward to some more. The picture doesn't really do the colour justice but it is gorgeous in real life and was much admired when I took some to the local quilling group last week!
