Good afternoon! It's been a great one here today. Kip and I both had a rare afternoon free and were able to each lunch together which was very nice. We have a new restaurant near us that has Japanese, Chinese and hibachi food. The sushi is pretty good there! Several months, or maybe a year ago I decided I wanted to learn how to do paper quilling. I taught myself several basic things using a small kit and a book that I was able to find. I really like the fringed paper flowers. I made a couple of them to use on this card to see how I like them as embellishments. What do you think? The directions mention using a wider quilling paper but this is the only size that I have been able to find. Onto today's card; I used the card sketch challenge from SCS for the layout of this card and for my colors, I used the colors that were in this patterned paper that I really like. The stamp is from Stampabilities and was stamped onto watercolor paper with Memento ink. The dress was painted using Twinkling H20 paints. I embossed the center panel with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and then went over it lightly with a sanding block to distress it just a little. Thanks for stopping by, hope you liked tonight's card.
