Flowers Instead of Snowflakes

My sister-in-low is having birthday in a few days and I decided to make her a birthday card with some flowers and bring a little sunshine instead of bells, bows, candles, icicles and that sort of things that we are all making these days. The sunlight showed up just for a few moments and I grabbed my woolen scarf and took couple of quick shots. 
And the sun was gone...

Управо сам завршила честитку, за коју ми је требало два дана, и тако сам уморна па ћу вас овај пут поштедјети приче шта и како ( супер ). У суштини, све су то стандардни quilling мотиви само што су тако минијатурни па је све ишло доста споро. Димензије честитке су: 165mm*85mm.
Just finished this one. Oh, my eyes, my hands, my...everything hurts, so I'll spare you with too many words ( OH,YES ).
One more thing ( OH, here she goes again ): this is my favorite card dimension: 165mm*85mm. Hope you'll like it.

Last summer, while I was in the middle of my wedding invitations job, with a deadline getting more closer and closer, I was asked to make a birthday card for Miss Milica. I find her, Milica, to be an extraordinary person for several reasons so I just couldn't say no to her, not ever. I did a few cards for her before; I've already posted some of them ( "S" and "B" ). So, she called and just said :" I need a card, monogram, for Jana. She is getting 18, loves rock and hippie music.".
Few weeks before that, I was making for her an "A" which was supposed to be a fancy one, shiny, with  glitter, some girlish colors...I admit it, it was SO HARD to do. But, rock and hippie...well, that's my field. I had always wanted to have one of those leather bracelet with silver rivets and decided to make something similar. I remembered that I had some small piece of black paper, imitation of leather, and  late at night, I pulled out my sewing machine and did a decorate stitch all around ( I have many and many hours of experience when it comes to sewing leather shoes ).
Rest of the job required day light so I, just to make it a little bit more complicated, punched 6mm holes, made tight coils, made a bulge and placed it through the holes. Pendants and chains are also made of paper but I most enjoyed making clasp. I didn't want to glue it so it can move, just like on the real one. 
And, that was it. 
Here you can see details:
And the inside of the card.
