Learning to quill paper

This is definitely new- only to me that is. Apparently Quilling has been around for very long but I heard of it just the other day and decided to give it a go.
I played along with the lovely sketch provided by the ever inspirational ladies of  ICS  which gave me a chance to try out my newbie quilling skills.
I used a lot of red paper and couldn't resist using the "Love you" clear stamp (is red officially the colour of love or is it just me?).
Of course I had to play around with several shapes. Am happy because now I can make my own flowers especially roses or interesting stuff like this quilled butterfly!
I used stuff that was already lying around in the house, my paper cutter, colored paper (from recycled envelopes) , a tooth pick and some glue. Yay for cheap!
My card also fit in the following challenges:-
ICS- Sketch #86
CCEE Stampers- Flower power.
Crafty Ho's Challenge- red, green and brown.
Delightful challenges- Red green and white.
Thank you for reading and have a happy, creative week.
