Punchcraft and Quilled Flowers on Handmade Photoframe

This year I have embarked on an ambitious project ..to make photo frames as christmas gifts for all 10 of my daughters teachers! My 6 year olds teachers this year are a real boost for my crafty ego as several of them thought I was a professional crafter who took classes...had to laughingly tell them I was a surgeon whose hobby was crafting!! 
So if time permits I hope to make 10 handmade photoframes[Here is the link to the photoframe tutorial].
Punchcraft roses
Jazzed up a glitter paper die cut vine using some  mulberry rose style flowers  made with  punchcraft. Here is the link to the paper rose tutorial.
Quilled flowers
After ages made some  quilled flowers.
Quilled Photoframe
The black background design is a Tim Holtz sign die over which I layered punchcraft flowers
Punch craft roses
 This type of  6 petal punch rose is the easiest punch craft rose!

 I am so in love with the CheeryLynn butterfly die.

  40. OMGoodness, Sonia, this is absolutely breath-taking! I'm glad you posted so many pictures as I have just been drinking up the beauty. Your flowers are stunning. Something about the color combinations and bountiful flowers in many of your designs, to me, reflects the unique beauty of Indian culture. I love it.

    I am going to post this on my Tickell Expressions Facebook page.

    Blessing hugs,
    Teresa
