For Fun Challenges - DT Project & Challenge Entry

Happy Wednesday! Today's challenge over at For Fun Challenges is a color challenge. In honor of Mardi Gras, we are to use the colors purple, gold, and green.  I participated in a hop this past weekend with Paper Tree House and the scripture that was the secret phrase for the hop was the inspiration for my card.  It says, "Trust in the Lord with all thy heart and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all they ways acknowledge Him and He shall make your paths straight."  That's Proverbs 3:5-6 and it's one of the scriptures that keeps me sane! 

Now, during Linda's birthday (http://www.myquillingnest.com/) celebration last month, I won my first quilling kit.  So...I decided to try my hand at quilling.  How did I do?  Well...I kinda racked up last month because I also won a paper stack from Nicole (http://www.creativedelightsbynicole.blogspot.com/) of which you see a sheet of cardstock featured on this card.  I really like the green paisley paper.  The stack is by DCWV. 

The sentiment was created on my computer.  I really love the braided cord which I found at my Joann's which is moving next month.  The fibers were buried deep in a box somewhere in all our moving stuff! 

I do hope you like my card and my first attempt at quilling.  Please head on over to the blog and check out my DT Sister's inspiration. I've seen it and once again, there's a lot of eye candy. What are you waiting on? Go ahead. I promise you'll love it. Enjoy!!!signature

Hey Christel,

One tip for the quilling...My quilling board is very helpful. They are inexpensive and but can be hard to find check with HL first! They help keep the paper quills even and the same shape.....Keep practicing...I will be doing a little quilling tut on my blog next month..I will keep you posted!
