Played along in Splitcoaststamper’s Inspiration Challenge today.  My intention for this challenge was to make a card to celebrate this Memorial Day weekend.  But then I spotted a beautiful floral plate, and well… this happened instead.

Here is the pink rose plate that was used as the inspiration.

This was such a fun image to color!  Tip: The centers of some of the roses are dotted with a white gel pen to help the flowers “pop”.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  But as you are having fun with family and friends…
