Rustic Quilled Snowflake

Remember last week's Merry Monday card? Well, here's the snowflake that I made, finally on a card. This week's challenge is Rustic Christmas, and the wood paper I picked up on the weekend made a perfect base.


Supplies: wood paper from MME; oval pearls from ancient stash; quilled snowflake made by me 

Simple and pretty! This card measures 5.25" square.

I can already tell I'm going to regret only buying one sheet of wood! I ordered more quilling paper last week & it just arrived, so with any luck I'll have some more fun stuff to show you :)


xoxo,
Jessi

I keep thinking I should try quilling because of STUNNING cards like this! You can turn clean lines into a masterpiece! Jealous of your talent.

What a stunner! I've got a quilling tool but have never used it... perhaps I should give it a go, Jo x

Wow! What a decorative snowflake! The clean design allows it to be the star of your card, it deserves that!

I saw this on FB .... oh wow! What patience to twirl those itty bitty strips of paper....but so worth the effort, though! Stunning piece, Jessi.

Quilling... some might not consider that simple. (And yet I persisted in trying to teach my classes the skill, because my head enjoys contact with brick walls.) This really is beautiful.
