HI friends today i am sharing a card which i have made for the ICRC challenge 8 .I had been selected the GD for this time's challenge which is to follow a sketch and the twist being to add some stiching to it be it real or faux stiching .

and based on the above sketch here is my card have a look.
I have used only quilling on this card as i felt the design justified it.This card has been inspired by a card i had seen on the QUILLED CREATION'S gallery some time back .I  don't have a link to share as it was quiet some time back, i really liked that card and the colors and the design stayed with me and when i saw this sketch i felt it would work so well with it.
                              Now a little bit about the card it self as you can see i created a window effect by placing four squares and layering them in three colors ,the design mostly consist of leaves and a flowers so kept the colors two toned (green and red) the quiiling strips are from michaels which i had with me for quite some time the good thing about these strips is they are pretty thick and they give a nice glossy effect too i enjoyed working with it.the sentiment is stamped and have done a bit of faux stiching around it.that's all from me.
                      hope you guys like my work,and as always your comments are much appreciated so do drop in a line .hope all of you have a good day ahead.
