Wedding card - quilled

I haven't been quilling for a pretty long time and I decided that I should take it up again since I really missed my strips =) And I had a very good reason to pick the tool up again - wedding of a beautiful couple.
There's a card I made for them:

A heart filled with all kinds of flowers has a negative-space "04.06" sentiment inside of it. That's actually the date of their wedding.
There's one more photo with slightly different light and some more shadows:


With this card I'm going to enter some challenges:
* Divas by design - florals; well, I hope it's obvious =)
* For Fun challenges - a wedding giftcard holder. Sorry, I have no photo of the inside - there was some handwritten sentiment and a pocket for "material" gift. Nothing really too special and a little too personal to take a pic of. But believe me, this card WAS a package for the wedding gift =)
* Polly craft challenge - Love & marriage. Didn't use any stamps on the card... but I hope it still qualifies for the challenge ;)
* Творим вместе - express-challenge "Ice-cream". Must be inspired with ice-cream. I love ice-cream! And my inspiration picture is:
Экспресс-задание "Мороженое". Вдохновляемся мороженым. Я люблю мороженое =) Мое вдохновение выглядело так:

Сама форма и розочки - вот и усеяла все сердечко цветочками. Правда, я не люблю розовый цвет, потому на открытке его немного и оттенок более сиреневато-перламутроватый, да и приглашения на свадьбу - оливково-золотистые с желтовато-болотными розочками - наталкивали на другие мысли. Потому могу сказать, мое сердечко больше фисташково-ванильное с черносмородными прожилками =) Так вкуснее!


Thanks for looking!

  4. WOW, this is absolutely stunning. It must have taken you forever. I've done quilling before, but never with these gorgeous results. I wouldn't be surprised if they frame it and hang it on the wall!

  14. Do I'm going through the blogs I follow with gooogle reader and I see wedding card and I think no big deal. Next the word quilling and I'm a fan of this technique so I want to check it out. Then I see it was published by you and the web page could not load fast enough. I was not at all disappointed when I saw it. You are amazing
