Purple quilled flowers



     A few days ago , I received a request to make a card to be gifted to non other than the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, J . Jayalalitha for her birthday . which is today. The request came from the management of a school.  They had no idea about quilling or quilled cards. They were looking for someone who could make them a handmade card  . Their search led to our library and to me .After seeing some of my cards and my blog  they asked me to make a completely quilled card with flowers and leaves. The only problem was I had less than two days in which to finish with the card size being a little less than A4.I wanted the card to look more green , which is the Chief Minister's favourite colour but instead it turned out more purple and adding more leaves only make the card look too busy.
    I tried some new colour combinations for this card  I made all the flowers using a needle tool, using  three different shades of purple. The greens and purples are made using 5mm strips and the little blue flowers were made using 3mm paper strips.

Thanks for stopping by , Have a great day.

Wonderfully done Suganthi! Although the green was not as much as you initially wanted, the green you do have is a great backdrop to make the other colors shine.
