Purple Passion

I wanted to try the petals which had one color in the center and another color on the outside. So, I had these light and dark purple strips which I put to use and quilled the petals. I used quite a lot of strips and learnt the role of tension, texture and thickness of the paper.
I had these petals with me from a long time. I saw my friend's blog with a purple flower and decided to enter the Kalalayaa's challenge.
Like my friend has mentioned, I also feel the purple looks more like blue in the picture. The background paper is actually a very beautiful deep purple. Other than the green color used for stems/leaves everything else is a shade of purple.
