crepe paper rosettes




        I have never used such brilliant colours on my card!  Kavitha is having a long celebration on her blog and I wanted to take a little part in it. For this card my starting point was a card of Kavi which she had sent me with her candy.I link this card to her Inspirational challenge .
     The brilliant colours I have used is inspired by ICR colour challenge I love bright colours and really enjoyed putting to use some of the stuff I never thought I would use. The back ground paper is from a hand made paper pack I got from Bangalore -a very bright yellow.The crepe paper rosettes are handmade and there is also a quilled flower.I have also used quilled letterings "Be Happy" with dark blue quilling strips, hope it shows in the picture.
      


      Crepe flower rosettes:-






                   Cut two strips of 1cm width crepe paper.




                   Accordion fold the strips.




                  Take a circle of paper and spread glue on the edges of the circle and stick the strip slowly gathering the folds as you glue all around the circle.



                 Cut off the extra strip of paper and stick the end.




                Apply glue in the center and glue the second strip same way as the first.


               I stuck a big bead in the center.


      Thanks for stopping by, Have a lovely day.
