~ happy birthday to you {quilled flower}

~ good morning :)
 here is the second card from last year
it is the same style as the first one but with a bit of colour



 I like to have some flowers on hand so when you need a last minute card
it is super quick to put it together {which is what these last two cards were}

like some of you commented on my last post, these flowers can be tricky to get just right
but keep trying and it will come
and non quillers just love them and don't know a good one from a bad one

....enjoy your day

edited to add a quick tutorial ......

make 3 eye marque shapes. The middle one 12” or ½ of a {lake city paper}
strip and the outer two 24” or a full strip each.

I pinned one large marquee to my quilling board gluing along one side, added the inner or small marquee and sandwiched it with the remaining large marquee with glue on the inside and then pinned it to place as well. Once it was dried I added a bit of glue to each end to get a nice point. I then pushed in on both ends to 'fluff' it up. For the flower in my original post I also wrapped the complete flower in quilling paper

  3. Hi Paula

    This flower design is not mine because I have seen them on the internet but this is what I did. I made 3 eye marque shapes. The middle one was 12” or ½ of a {lake city paper} strip and the outer two were 24” or a full strip each.

    I pinned one large marquee to my quilling board gluing along one side, added the inner or small marquee and sandwiched it with the remaining large marquee with glue on the inside and then pinned it to place as well. Once it was dried I added a bit of glue to each end to get a nice point. I then pushed in on both ends to 'fluff' it up. I have added some pictures on my blog post so you can get a better idea.

    hope that helps
