A Most Beautiful Gift


I received a package this weekend from my friend Helen and on opening it I could not believe my eyes at the beautiful gifts inside! A gorgeous card with a matchbox and purse set - all in beautiful soft colors and a sparkling black!

I opened the purse first, and inside was another match box and inside this box was an exquisite quilled flower necklace! Helen's quilling has always been an inspiration to me and to see her work in person, well these photos do not begin to show the loveliness of the quilled flower! And the purse itself is so beautiful - with a black satin ribbon, a beautiful flower and that fantastic black sparkling card stock!

When I opened the matchbox, inside that was a matching set of quilled flower earrings! The matchbox is lovely-with another of the beautiful flowers that Helen also made!

Click on the photo to enlarge it and see the lovely quilling work showcased against the pretty sparkling black cardstock inserts!

The card has more of Helen's quilling in the dainty rosebuds and also has three of the beautiful roses she makes! Combined with the embossing - perfection! Helen remembered my favorite colors and this card is so beautiful that I want to frame it!

I am blessed with good friends! Thank you again Helen! I love my gift! You can see all of Helen's cards and projects on her blog "Lets Create" at

It's going to be a Happy Day here today! I will post photos tomorrow! :<)

Wishing you a good Monday!
