Not Anytime Soon Again Flowers

Today's "Try a New Technique" over at Splitcoaststampers was to do quilling. I named my card Not Any Time Soon Flowers because you will not see me doing another one of these "anytime" soon. lol

Attention all card makers......if you are a quiller, I get on my knees and bow to you.....you are the KING or QUEEN!!! I couldn't get my ends to "stick". Maybe I just didn't use the right glue. I made two attempts at this as the first one I did 1/4" strips....man that was way to thick, I would have had to purchase one of those VCR boxes to send the dang card. So then I redid all these flowers again with 1/8" strips and it worked out better.

Let's just say....after this challenge, I am going to confession Saturday night!!!!! This was a challenge for me, but I am thankful for the challenge.

The card itself is the same cardstock as the light pink flower, I used a cuddlebug embossing folder on the white background. The heart is white cardstock and the same hot pink as the other flower. Not much supplies, but boy you have to have the patience of a "Saint" to do this.

Why not hop on over to Splitcoast Stampers and give it a try. Thanks for stopping by today. I appreciate you and welcome your comments.

Carol, I have to agree with you. I tried quilling years ago and it was SO hard! But, I must say this card is outstanding and SO beautiful! Are you SURE you don't want to do anymore quilling? Just kidding, you don't have to if you don't want to! :) Michelle

Carol--I was almost on the floor I was laughing so hard at your comments!!!!! I used to quill wedding invitations when DH & I were first married to make extra money! And, I taught quilling classes for years. We'll have to get together sometime & I'll teach you to love quilling! LOL Anyway, your card is beautiful! And you even added pearls to the centers! That's an "advanced" technique! TFS--Patty
