thanks is for giving.



Happy Friday!!!!

So glad that it's my day off.  I still have a ton of unpacking to do!

Here's a skinny 3 inch wide card:


Still lovin' the Basic Grey Persimmon collection.  I added the domo arigato from the CAS-ual Fridays Big Thanks set.


Last week I was inspired by the photo, this week I decided to use the sketch:


Funny thing about my card, I accidentally laid the ikat panel down wrong...it was totally scooted over towards one direction rather than being centered on that sweet bird panel.  GAH, the ATG had it down pretty snug and I feared ripping the birds so I did the next best thing, I trimmed the panel, a lot.  HA.

I'm really lovin' that Basic Grey collection...sigh.

I can't wait to see how YOU are inspired by the Fusion challenge!

This has been edited to add:



Thanks to the fabulous Kimberly who reminded me of this fun challenge over at the awesome Moxie Fab World!  I'm a big fan of using collections embellishments.  It makes for a slam dunk/matchy-matchy card!
