~ Savor The Roses ~

Happy Friday, friends!

What can I say?  It has been one of THOSE weeks!   I made a To Do list on Sunday for this week and it has haunted me all week.   I think I am going to do away with the To Do lists from now on.   Hard one, though, as I have OCD issues.   I read a funny statement somewhere that goes “I am an OCD procrastinator.  I’ll do it right, but I’ll do it later!”.   I think that pretty well sums me up! haha!

Today, the OCL crew is starting a weekly sketch challenge.   This week the sketch comes from a card by Broni Holcombe.   This is the sketch:



You can find the sample used and information on the challenge on the OCL blog ~ The Lounge.


I used the new Vintage Roses set.   I never was much of a vintage girl, but lately, it really is interesting me.   I am working toward the vintage, though, as you can tell by this card.    I wish I had roughed up some edges, but it is what it is.


Here are my deets:

Stamps: Our Craft Lounge‘s Vintage Roses

Colors: Chocolate chip, metallic gold, Kay and Co dps, Very Vanilla, GP White

Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, Tim Holtz’ tea bag and old photo distressing ink, copics

Accessories: pink lace  and Chocolate Twill (from Sharon Johnson’s Stamp Simply Ribbon Store), chocolate 1/2 pearls, oval punch, trinket, sponge, dimensionals


Thanks for stopping by!  If you have time, pop over to the OCL Blog ~ The Lounge and play along!   I hope you have a blessed day!

    Lovely job on the vintage look, Holly. You are mastering this look wonderfully well. Love the trinket and the lace you used. Well done:

    Loved the quote too! No OCD here, but I can sure relate to the doing it right, but doing it later part LOL! Have a great day 😀
