~Another CAS-ual and the Cafe~

 I'm on a quilling streak, it seems. ;)

How many times before I can say "I quill"?
I am truly enjoying my gift.

 (supplies: Sticker,Piggy Tales DP,American Crafts AC cardstock,Fiskar's border punch,Marvy circle punch,quill paper)

 I just noticed quarter lines in the belly of my Marvy punch.

It helped me determine a quarter of the circle to create notches in my sentiment panel.

I think these look way better than if I had just eyeballed it.

Here is the sketch again, by Laura at

My colors were inspired by

I was so excited to find this sentiment sticker that looked pretty close to the motivated me to finish this card! ;)
