Quill Bamboo Cards

Hello,
I saw this quill bamboo here.  It looks pretty simple to make so I made  these two cards.




I like the first one better.  The second one is a smaller square card and it looks a bit busy.

Last week I received another award from Irina at Kiddo's blog.  Irina does beautiful modular origami and her quilling creations are stunning.  Thank you Irina for this award.  I am truly flattered.


Rules are:
Share 5 things about yourself (1 of the 5 things must related to crafting)
Pass the award to 5 other blogs

I just share things about me last week so I will share how I came to have this blog.  This blog actually is my third blog.  My first blog was HelenHandmadeCraft.com didn't work out.  Then I used Typepad and that one didn't work out either.  I was very frustrated but I didn't want to give up.  Then I stumbled upon Blogspot and it said I could create a blog for FREE.  All I needed is a google account.  My email is with google so I gave it a tried and here I am two years later.  I am so happy to have this blog and more importantly are the friendship that I've  made through this blog.  Thank You!!!


Hugs,

Helen

Those are cool. I'm glad I came over from Make it Monday to see both cards. How clever to quill the leaves and use twine for the stalks!

Helen the green on green looks amazing. An oriental feel card. Makes me think I am in a posh Chinese restaurant.

Helen I think you should frame this one--dont give it away as a card.The green one is so lovely

Wow, so elegant. I know what you mean about the second one, but I think it holds its own. It would be perfect for the right person.

Hi Helen, such pretty cards. I love the quilling and love those corners. They help to bring out the Asian flair of the bamboo. TFS
