A nameplate

Yeah finally I made a nameplate with my daughter's name on it... Simply loved the whole process... quilling is so engrossing and I simply love it... cant get enough of it...
This is a sneek peek into the nameplate... I started off by doing the letters and then did some beehive quilling inside the letters. I thought I will leave it at that but then remembered that you could make your own paper frame... thanks to Inna's idea here... So after some wrestling with the paper, I managed to get it somewhat right, it was my first attempt, quite ok. Then again I thought I will leave it like that but no... I wanted more quilling to be done.. so when I asked my 2.5 yr old.. shall we make some flowers, she was even more ecstatic because she loves to accompany me on my quilling sessions. I give her a strip and a pencil and she pretends to quill...:) So we began making the flowers... some Malaysian flowers, some normal tear drop arranged flowers (do they have a name, pls let me know) and then some leaves and branches... it was getting all the more better looking than before... But I had to stop somewhere so I did finally... But again when I look at it, I feel I could have added some more.. maybe in the next typography + frame I will do it hehe... Here are some pictures.
This picture is before I added the flowers...

Hope you like it
