Joining the Fusion Challenge!

Happy Saturday!

I'm playing with the Fusion Card Challenge for the first time - yay! :)


When I saw their third challenge, I fell in love with the colors of Lesley's inspiration photo! I also love Jackie's sketch, so I decided to use both for my card.

 

I used some black strips for the bottom of the card. The Sizzix Branch with Leaves was die-cut from paper that I had inked up with Hero Arts' Soft Granite Shadow Ink. Then I inked up some more paper with their Raspberry Jam, Mid-Tone Shadow ink and die-cut the PTI flowers. The glittery, gray center is an adhesive accent from Cloud 9 Design and the sentiment is also Hero Arts.

I'm so glad you stopped by today - hope you're enjoying your weekend! :)

I'm enthralled by the leaf treatment, Barb. In that color, they look like they are a part of the card base and truly twined around the lines. I love it! And the flower? Brilliant!!
