Made from Verve sketch and for F4A challenge. My first time (and probably last) trying to ahere Opalines. Ugh! Is there a tutorial? They stuck to my tool, my nails, each other, everywhere except where I wanted them to! I have learned NOT to take photos in the setting sun as it changes the color. This should be very pink.

This is a beautiful card. I love that rose....the color and the frosting on the petals is gorgeous! I also found out the hard way that those gem swirls are terrible to transfer to a card. If someone has an easy way to do it, I hope she will teach the rest of us!

Beautiful card...whatever trouble you had with the pearls...was worth it, as they look stunning! Love the sentiment as well, it's one of my faves!
When I adhere my pearl flourishes, I'll cut the back off of just half of it, while leaving the plastic backing on the rest. Then I align the "sticky" side onto the paper and when I like where it's going to land, I peel off the back of the rest. This should give you good alignment. Hope that helps...and thanks for playing along with us! :)
