Vintage Roses

Good morning! Hope you all had a great week and now you're enjoying the weekend. I have two cards to show you today using my Vintage Roses set from OCL and I paired it up with my new Report Card DP. The layout on the first card is yesterday's OCL Sketch 03 from Val:


The aqua circle is up on foam tape and I colored the Kaiser Craft pearls with my BG11 Copic.

The layout on the next card was last week's OCL Sketch 02 from Charmaine:


.....great CAS-style sketch, but for some reason I totally struggled with it. I made a card last week that I ended up pitching because it was butt ugly (lol!). I'm not really lovin' how this card came out either, but at least it's better than the other one. The flower was made with my SU scallop punch and you can see Dawn McVey's tutorial on how to make them HERE on this post.

Have an awesome day!
