Purple card with quilled flower and punches

Purple card with quilled flower

I created this simple purple card for this week's CPS Sketch challenge, #170. I've been following their blog for a long time, but this is the first time I participate :) Colored paper of various tints of purple and white watercolor paper were used for it. The quilled flower has been made using 1/8"-wide (3mm) hand-cut paper strips. I also used patterned scissors and punches to decorate the card. Size: 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches (11.5 x 11.5 cm).

I think most of my regular readers aren't new to paper quilling, but if you are, you may want to learn how to make a quilled flower embellishment for your greeting card. I have many quilling tutorials on this blog, the basic instruction can be found in Getting started with paper quilling.
