I made this card for my grandma for mother's day, and since she's coming over for Easter tonight, I made it early. Though it may not look like much compared to what it could be, still, it took me easily between four and five hours. That's what I get for making intricate flowers! LOL.
What is this blog?
This blog is about my crafts as I'm sure it's obvious, but rather specifically I post about my quilling. I suppose I didn't include quilling in the title simply because that would limit what I could put in this blog. In other words, 99% of this is in fact quilling.
There ARE periods where I don't post anything for a long time, but that doesn't mean I'm done with quilling! I'll post again. Eventually.

Hey guys! I haven't quilled in a while, I've been on a quilling break. I made this card yesturday for a Wedding shower! Funny story. I had prom yesturday, and the shower is about 5 hours away from my house and I needed to sleep in from being up so late so I couldn't make it! But, at least I could make a little card for the bride to be!
The green paper is actually new (well, I bought it a month or so ago, but I just opened it). It's called leaf green, so I thought it would be fun to go for a "realistic look". It's hard to tell, but I did stamp the background with a rolly stamp. It was with white ink though. I didn't want it to stand out because I wanted the quilling to play the main part, but I thought it would give it a little something extra! I don't know if you can see it from this picture, it's mostly just a perspective thing, but I can see it! It doesn't look super complicated, but it still took me two hours to make! I was busy yesturday so I couldn't do more, but my mom liked its simplicity anyway.
