Sarah's Inspiration

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 :)

I adore the look of quilling, but it's something I've never tried. You, on the other hand, are an adventurer and you did a beautiful job on this! I would never know it was your first attempt. Beautiful!

Very pretty Connie. Love the quilling. I've never tried it, but it's fascinating! The decorative rectangle looks great behind the white panel. It must look wonderful in real life.

Have to say this is beautiful! I have always wanted to quill! I love your colors and the colors are perfect ! Your die cuts are awesome too! I need to look at my Resplendent Rectangles. I didn't see that gorgeous die cut in the middle with the eyelet corners. I love it!
