MC July/14 - Easel Blossoms - Smile Amen of Nature HB

http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2014/MCJuly14_EaselBlossoms_SmileAmenOfNatureHB.htmlSo I was trying to make a less "high" type of flower using that faux blossom tool I mentioned a while back (here). They are less high, but still too high for inexpensive mailing. Sigh!! C'est la vie.

I also was trying out something new I found on line, using 2 or 3 colored strips of quilling paper at a time to create the variation type leaves. I like the concept and will play with it a bit more.

All in all I really like the way this card turned out. You can see all the details, descriptions and more view by clicking on card image. Enjoy
