Here’s the inspiration chosen by our Rock Stars:

May Photo Insp

For my card I began by stamping and white heat embossing several of the Repeat Impressions Florals including, “Fern 1708-G, Flowers 9706-U, and Unmounted Plate 10300.  I used watercolor to create the background and then put the entire image through a We R Memory Keepers embossing folder for texture.  I finished with the “Thank you… 2524-F”
