Elegant Swirls

It took me a long time and a lot of different tries, but I finally feel like I was able to copy the elegant swirls of this beautiful wedding invitation. I loved the asymmetrical swirls at the top and the pair of hearts! I like to add them to wedding projects like this because they add a punch of color without putting flowers on.

Less is More

I have been enjoying my time working on wedding invitations this week. I always try to see something in the invitations to 'copy' into the quilling so that it all coordinates. This time, it was the flower in the background that I picked. I put this together, thinking that it was just the beginning of the project, but the more I looked at it the more I thought "Less is more!" It just didn't look like it needed anything else. I thought it looked so elegant with just a couple flowers filling the corners.

What do you think? Is less, more?
