Quilled Thanks

I've been wanting to try my hand at quilling for some time now, but like all things, it's just a matter of finding the time. Or maybe in this case, the right inspiration. I made this card for the Clean and Simple challenge and the Paper Players color challenge. The quilling is very simple - circles! The first time I made them I cut the strips too thick, so I made them half the size, started the roll on a toothpick, and finished it with some glue. The stamp comes from the dollar bin at Michaels.




Thanks for looking!
-Brenda

Hi Brenda,
Such a fresh and pretty card, love those sweet flowers you created, and the embossed lines for the sentiment is a great interpretation of the sketch! Thank you for joining us at the Paper Players.

I love the idea of tiny paperquilling. Quite beautiful. Too bad these granny eyes aren't as sharp as they used to be or I'd try it !
