Thanks, U Rock...Inkspirational Challenges #106

Hello,

Hope you're having a most wonderful day! I'm still at my mom's (heading home Sunday...sighhh).  Kindergarten volunteering was on the schedule today and once again, I had a blast.  We went on a field trip to the local fire station where the fire fighters were amazing with the kids...and yes, they were definitely easy on the eyes, too! Men in uniform...oops, did I say that out loud *grin*

Anyway...moving on...

My DT - ShaunaSandiePiaMarinaKim and I - along with our ever-so-talented guest designer, Sathya, all the way from UAE, are delighted to invite you to join us with our new Inkspirational Challenge #106~Rock.


Cool, right?  What does 'rock' spark for you?  Music? Mineral? Something or someone awesome?  Choices, choices....

My card features two things I do rarely: emboss AND watercolour. GASP! I know...but I had to practice a technique and colour combination that caught my attention at the free class (yes, FREE class!)  at Justine Hovey's blog.  Pretty much a total copy (although her colours blend much better than mine...but I tried...and I even did a couple more panels...), with an added little "u rock" label sentiment. 

Apologies for the photo, but this time, I'm blaming it on the embossing-warping issue.  
Grrr....fortunately, in real life, it's not 'quite' so evident...

Looking forward to seeing your *rockin'* creations in the gallery!
