Ann over at Ann's Scrap and Edit, I've just discovered a quilling challenge site called Take A Quill Pill, and have decided to enter this card design into the October Challenge for a card which features both a flower and a butterfly.
Regular followers of Quilliance will recognise the flower in the photo background as my favourite purple clematis which I captured in the summer during a visit to a wonderful English country garden. I particularly love this flower for its pale yellow and pink centre which I have tried to reproduce in the quilling using joined-together fringed strips. The butterfly is quite literally a flight of fantasy, with its main wings created using three different colour strips glued at the ends and coiled together. To add a little extra interest, the middle (yellow) strip is crimped.
Well there are already some great entries in the October Challenge, so I don't know how this one will fare - but it's fun to take part something like this. And I'd like to wish good luck to Ann who has also entered a beautiful card.
Here's another close-up of my quilling:
