CCEE1519 - Self-Made Flower & More

New month -- new CCEE Challenge hostess.  Joanne is our hostess for the month of May, and she is making us bring out all our tools this month.  This week she wants us to use an embossing folder, some brads, and a hand-made flower.  I decided once again to give quilling a try.  I've done this a couple of times, with varying degrees of success -- but I've never really been happy with the results.  My quilling efforts on today's card is probably better than previous tries, but still not great.  I do like the colors though!


Check out the CCEE Stampers Blog to see how the rest of the team answered Joanne's challenge.

Kudos for trying the quilling for your flower. I have only done one project myself trying that technique and it will take lots of practice for me. You seem to have gained ground on it!! Beautiful card.

What a gorgeous blossom, Lois! I love the die cut vine over your embossed leaves! Such pretty work!

It's a beautiful flower, Lois - and how very clever to use that leafy ef behind the flourish. The colours give this a real Victorian feel to me - along with the elegant flower and beautiful brad.
