Quilled Rose Heart Card

Hi all!  Back with another card.  This is one of the January CQ DT projects and I saved it for this week.  I'll have another heart themed card for tomorrow!  This card features quilled folded roses in several shades of pink atop a die cut deep red velvet heart. Another technique that I have used with making these folded roses is to paint the quilling strips with Twinkling H2O's to give them some sparkle, or I have just painted the tips of the petals after completing them.  I did not do that to these though, but will in another post later so you can see the difference it makes.  The leaves are punched with the Birch Leaf Punch Bunch punch, the sparkly DP is some that I purchased at Michael's and don't remember the name, sorry.   It was the perfect backdrop for this "lovey" card.  I used Sharon Johnson's ribbon technique for the bow, it is really easy and elegant, you can find it here.

I added two quilled hearts in the center of the bow for more "heartyness", sorry, couldn't resist.  They are two quilled teardrops glued together at the pointed ends, then I wrapped them in a contrasting crimped strip.  Lastly I glued them on to a white cloth wrapped floral wire and just stuck them in the center of the bow.  Quick and easy!

Thanks for your support and sweet comments.  I am taking an online class for water coloring my images and I can't wait to show you some of the practice pieces!  More about the class later.  I just wanted to get the short post up.  See you tomorrow!
