More Barbles goodness, and my first CREATE challenge!

I've finally added a label for the Barbles posts, because it seems to me there are going to be enough posts to group them together! Now to go through & tag the rest of the posts :)

GO DO IT. You know you wanna!
For this card I was inspired partly by the colours, and partly by the diagonal layout I saw within the photograph:

rose-colored glasses
And, for my first time, I've managed to create something for the CREATE challenge before the deadline. Rolled paper? I'm ALL OVER rolled paper! Here's my card:

Supplies: paper from Basic Grey "Lemonade;"
flowers quilled by me;
white sparkle die-cuts from K & Co;
rhinestone swirls & individual gems from $ store

and pretty much the same picture, but without the envelope.
And a second card, this time just for the rolled paper challenge at CREATE:
Supplies: papers from Basic Grey "Sweet Threads;"
Marvy vase punch;
Martha Stewart banner & leaf frond punch;
sentiment from MFT; stamped with Palette Noir & black EP;
heart doily from Royal;
pearls from $store

I saw that Create challenge, too, Jessi, but I never would have thought of quilling for it. How perfect!! Definitely right up your alley. Both of these creations are just AMAZING!! You are one talented gal. Wow!

Yep, right up your alley, isn't it? I always love your quilling. The first one has such gorgeous colors, but I love the vase with the doily in the second. Awesome, girl! Good luck with the Create entries!

Hi Jessi - sorry I have been so absent. Hope you're doing well.

Your first card is just stunning!! I totally love that paper. Everything in this card is just fantastic.

I love the simplicity and colors of the 2nd card. Your quilling is just amazing.

These are gorgeous, Jessi! Your quilling is really amazing. That vase of flowers on the doily table cloth is really beautiful.

These are perfect for the CREATE challenge!!! And they are beautiful! Where did you learn to quill? It's really not crafting the way you do it, it's art:)

And I'm totally in love with the flower vase! Loving the cute little vase and the foliage you added to that card.

Take care!

That's a great way to take inspiration from the photo Jessi...that's why I'm pants at these sort of challenges, too literal (my autistic streak!)
Fabulous quilling on both projects...especially love the vase of flowers :)
