This is obviously a variation of Card 1. The deeper colors were the client's first choice, but we had to swap it out because it took away from the main piece. It was also too large compared to the overall design. Sometimes with quilling, I can't tell until it's all done.
I'm very thankful my hubby cooks (so much better than I can), and didn't mind taking on all our meals, prepping, and clean up so I could focus solely on this project.
