Fusion Challenge: go. see. do.





There's a brand new challenge up on the 



This week I decided to go with the sketch and channel my inner Tenia Nelson:

cardstock:  stampin' up basic black, my favorite things steel grey, papertrey ink vellum  paper:  mme/jubilee/tangerine  stamps:  winner & walter the big, the bold and fun  ink:  stampin 'up white embossing powder  other:  savvy deer head die

...it would have been a complete Tenia card is I could have managed a smidge of washi but I couldn't believe I didn't have something that would tie everything together....

Isn't the paper awesome?

It's MME/Jubilee/Tangerine.

I'm in love with it and will be keeping it on my desk to use for the next couple of weeks.  

Did you spy the stitching on the vellum panel?

I had so much fun putting this together, the Winner & Walter sentiment is perfect.  I'm going to tuck this away for my boy that is graduating from high school this June.  I've been thinking about it more and more...I'm not going to be a happy camper being a empty nester.  gah!  It's all good, of course I want my kidlets to go to college!
