Day 2 OCL Sneak Peeks!!

Are you ready for a sample from my FAVORITE set being released this week? It’s called Sunflower Seeds.   I LOVE that’s it’s different…and I love that it’s a bit country, but it can be a little vintage or even just a friendly floral set!!  I also have a little personal connection with this set : )  Can you guess how?

- A bit about the card -

I first found the brads – LOVE THEM… and then I went on a paper search to match the brad in my LSS -  This paper just felt so farmy to me (no clue why) and I was also deeply in love with the colors!!   My sister would probably guess that I’m a PINK lover (she’s a pink h.a.t.e.r.) – (I do always have a favorite pink shirt) but I actually LOVE LOVE LOVE yellow/orange colors, add a pop of red in there and I’m in earthy heaven!!  Okay, I also LOVE pink and orange together!  SO maybe it’s the orange that I actually love? 

Sorry – got a little off subject there!  Anyway – back to the card.  I went a little brad crazy on it – See the fancy brad with the yellow center?  (um… LUV it)  Then see the other smaller fancy brad with the brown center?  Well, those smaller brads came with the yellow centers as well but I popped off the yellow gem and added Coffee Bean Brown Sparkly Fluff – FUN, eh?  Of course, I also added the Sparkly Fluff to the sunflowers’ centers – but of course!!

Here’s a close up of the sparkly brad and the hen – I LOVE HER!!  She and the flowers are popped up on foam tape! kp-sunflower-chicken kp-sunflower-chicken
