Quilled Valentine Card... Be Mine

Here's a quilled card idea... the black and white flower is a domed tight coil with a gold center, surrounded by black semi-circle coils. Marquises are used as stylized leaves, and black and gold-gilded black papers make up the little bumble bee. The complete pattern can be found in last January's CardMaker Magazine.
I curved the red punched flowers by rubbing each one with the ball of a glass head pin in my palm before gluing randomly on the card.

A friend pointed out I could have embraced the cute and gone with Bee Mine instead. How true!

And going back to my previous post for a moment... Rosie Graham, of quilled hearts fame, told me her Paper Treasure blog is still online even though she's shifted gears and is into needlework now. If you go to this page and scroll down, you'll find all sorts of beautiful quilling, including more hearts. Thanks Rosie!
