❀❀ Fusion #3: hello ❀❀



...and we're back with more Fusion fun!

Thanks to all that played along with Fusion #2!

Here's the newest:


I'm on Lesley's team!


Here's how I was inspired:



I used the Flower Border card from the silhouette store.  

2 words

patience grasshopper

I did this cut file about 4 times before I was happy with the results.  I know I need to just go buy some thin cardstock.  

It was worth the time though, I love the contrast and pop of color.

I was inspired by:

1.  the colors
2.  the flowers

The chippie is American Crafts and the colored paper is Basic Grey.

Sadly, Fusion Scientist, Kay will not be experimenting with us.  I love her wonderful style and will continue to follow her crafty goodness!  We wish her much crafty happiness!  On a happy note, we have Stacey joining the Fusion Scientists!!!!

Make sure you pop over to the Fusion blog so you can find out who our spectacular guest designers are!!!!!

Sometimes the Silhouette is all about 'patience grasshopper'! Many a project has ended up in the recycle bin after the double cut has eaten the paper. Your card is gorgeous, so the end result is perfect.
