Paper Quilling - Day 2

I'm liking Paper Quilling. I am still having some trouble mastering pulling the paper off the tool, but it that is my only trouble in the world, I should be happy! Paper Quilling is fun. Earlier today, I posted a link to a tutorial I took and I found out later this afternoon, that my name was randomly selected for blog candy! Yippee!!! I also received a post from another quiller. I checked out her site and so should you!
I plan to check both blogs frequently.

Here is my card for today's Split Coast Stampers Sketch challenge.

This challenge kicked my butt. It is a great sketch, but I have been told by friends that I am obsessive compulsive. Na, not me...can I tell you how many times I cut the strips to make sure that they were precisely the same length?? Have I mentioned that I love the TV show "Monk"?Ok, maybe I am a tad compulsive... But anyway, I used my cuttlebug to emboss the Colonial White mat (it is barely visible) and used my Prisma Markers to color the stamped rose. The quilling arrangement is my own inexperienced pattern. Those are ovals cut with my Cricut and I used my favorite CTMH paper..."That's Amore."

I'm smelling my sausage and peppers cooking in the crock pot so that tells me it's time to check on dinner. For Now, Happy Crafting!

I have recently gotten interested in quilling also. I havent attempted it yet, but I think it will go nicely with my 3-D flowers. I love how you used it here with the rose!!!
