My first Quilling card


Oh My Goodness!!!  My grandmother has been quilling for years.  Have you heard of it or seen it?  Basically it is paper rolling.  She is now 94 and just can't see well enough to do it.  So this weekend my Mom and Dad brought me her stash of quilling papers, tools, and books. I have been receiving cards from her for so many years and thought it looked like a ton of fun so I would give it a try.  I have spent all day - ALL DAY on this card.  Wowzers!!!!  The time that goes into this craft is unreal!!!  I realize this was my first time and I am slow but - well again wow!  I am going to send her this card.  I know she will enjoy receiving it because last month when I was at their apartment she still has the Christmas card I sent them sitting out.  Awe, gotta love grandma's!!  This beautiful scripture verse is from Doodle Pantry, the set is called Renewed Faith.  I will tell you I'm not sure when you will see another quilling card from me. =)
I would like to submit this card into these challenges:
That Craft Place - Anything Goes
A Gem of a Challenge - Something Blue
Outlawz - Add Some Flowers
Sweet Stampin'  - Something Old and Something New (my quilling supplies are new to me, and the scripture set is old to me)
Sketch Saturday - Sketch
