Loose Scrolls look like question marks to me and are combined with easy heart outlines for this card.
If you struggle with accidental glue globs, what I do is set one end down first while keeping the other end up in the air. Then I set the other side down. This way your eyes are not struggling to look at so many crucial areas at the same time.

Card #3: Quilling Flowers and Leaves
