I had fun with the paper weaving on this card.  Love to fiddle with complicated things.

You've done a beautiful job! I love the quilling. I've never had much luck with it myself but I think it is beautiful.

How do you get the quilled flower to stick so nicely to the card and can you mail it without crushing the flower?

Just a tiny bit of glue that dries clear sticks quilling to cards well.  Quilling is actually quite sturdy.  My quilled cards I usually hand deliver or put them in a thin sturdy box or tin box to mail.  I wouldn't trust a bubble envelope only because I would worry.  If you quill using a lot of what we call pegs....coils you don't allow to unwind, quilling would probably be very sturdy and make it okay in a bubbled envelope.  I just wouldn't chance it.

Love the quilling of the stems and leaves, almost looks like a Celtic design.  Very pretty!
