Mini 3" by 3" Note card

I love these tiny little cards which I came to know are called as Note cards and measure 3" by 3".. wouldn't they look cute? Such note cards are the ideal cards for a little thank you along with a gift, ain't it?
So as part of the challenge for this month set by Catchy Challenges, mini 3" by 3" note cards along with envelope have to be submitted. So here is what I made - ideas inspired by:
Swirls from this tutorial by Susan's quilling. Although the swirls haven't come out so well, I think they are not bad for a first try, right? I made the flower using this technique described by Azlina of Lin's Handmade Greetings Card - you can view the video here (I have really fallen in love with quilling with the comb technique!!).
And I made the envelope with the help of this tutorial video, really very easy and helpful!

I just used some card stock, textured paper, quilling paper and flower punch for the flowers on the envelope. The sentiment is on the inside of the card.
Here are the pictures... enjoy.
