Quilled Wedding Invitation Border

My first custome quilling project!  A very nice lady wanted a quilled border around a friends wedding invitation for a unique gift.  Her great aunt had quilled a border around her invitation years ago.  We wanted it to be fallish (?) and more casual but still feel elegant.  Both of us were very happy with the result.

I had to make some slight adjustments to ensure it all fit within the spacers in the frame.

The flowers are teal blue with brown centers to match to invitation border colors.  The leaves are crimped chestnut colored paper to mimic the small framed leaf.  The flourishes are pearlized cream paper.  The wedding bells in the corner are pearized white.
