Soooo in Love for OCC

I had fun making this card but it took longer than any card I think I’ve ever made! One night I started the card, cut out the circles needed for the flowers and misted them. I used 5 drops of burgundy and 4 drops of regal rose and 2 small scoops of white Perfect Pearls in a Mini Mister and used the whole thing on my ‘petals’. The next day I got the flowers assembled. The following day I assembled the card but thought it needed something (the sentiment wasn’t on yet). I hemmed and hawed and finally decided on this pre-printed canvas sentiment! Whew!!

soooo in love

Think it was worth the work and waiting? I think so too!!

I don’t have time now but I will post instructions for the flowers (unless I can find the blog with instructions for the ones I was inspired by. Hope so)!! Click on the sketch for the link.

Enjoy, Rebecca
