Checkered Heart

Here is a card I made for the April challenge at Stamp School ( The challenge was a photo inspiration with the following colours: pink, green and white.  I added black because I think it made the card stand out more.

By the way, Stamp School is looking for people to enter their challenges, so go check it out!

I created the checkered background by weaving quilling paper. I cut out a heart shape opening on a square of card stock and layered the woven paper behind the opening.  Then I made the spiral roses and cut the leaves by hand.  For the stems I used think floral wire that is covered with green tape.


  1. Wow, Sue! You're right! The black really does help to make this stand out. I LOVE your pretty flowers! Kx

  2. Fabulous card! Love your rolled flowers, and you are correct - the black looks wonderful! Thanks so much for playing in my color challenge over at Stamp School!

  3. What a great card. Love those rolled roses! That black is a great pop of color. Thanks for playing along at Stamp School!
