Fusion #11: OH.EM.GEE

We're already up to Fusion #11!

You gals keep me so inspired with your wonderful designs!


1. Play with just Jackie's sketch challenge.

2. Play with just Lesley's inspiration photo challenge.

3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.

4. Use the challenge graphic and link back to Fusion in your post.

I'm on Lesley's Team:

I was inspired by the 

plaid ties = preppy
preppy = khaki

I inked up 2 Mama Elephant sets:  
Basic Borders
Good Times

I used Fresh Ink:

The Pebbles bloom...where, I gotta tell you, without it my card seemed oh-so-lonely.  I kept telling myself to not slap anything else on the card...keep it one layer and then I go and trim it so that I have a white panel with a khaki base {it was originally a white base/one layer card} and then 'had' to add the bloom.

Call it

girly preppy

What inspires you?
