Oooops I am a day late posting my inspiration card. Yesterday was very busy day. My inspiration came from Sarah's Blog . She is the only one that I follow that does quilling and it is so pretty, I thought I just had to give it a try. Here and Basket Here are where I took my inspiration for this card from. I used one of the styles of flowers from the card and in the basket you can see like curly cues stuck here and there that is what I did for the stem.
This card measures 5x7" so you can just imagine how big this flower was, curious how it will make it through the mail. I didn't want to go out and buy quilling papers so I used cardstock from Michaels that is a little lighter weight and it seemed to work pretty good, although never using quilling paper I can't really compare. I used my trimmer and cut the strips 1/8 inch. don't know if you can tell but the center is out of the same gray I used on the background die.
If you have a chance check out Sarah's blog, she does more than just beautiful quilling projects. Thank you Sarah for giving me inspiration to try something totally new :)
