Happy Independence day

       A very happy Independence day to everyone. Since I started quilling I have included quilling also in all my celebrations and in that way I wanted to quill a card for independence day. I meant to keep it simple, it is a simple design but making the wheel with 24 spokes was a challenge. For the background I have used water colours .I have made the center wheel with 3mm Navy blue colour strips.
       This is an easel card ,I have quilled a small kolam at the base, again I have used only the colours in our flag .I have used 3mm width quilling paper for the kolam. I found the tutorial for easel card here. This card goes to Regina's challenge.

      My elder son particularly wanted me to take a picture in this angle to show how it is an easel card.

      This is another picture of the kolam . 
      We hoist the National flag early morning on August 15th, independence day at our local library and this year after the flag hoisting my younger son Akhil spoke about one of our prominent freedom fighters Va Vu Chidambaranar.

      Thanks for stopping by, have a creative day.
