Fusion Card Challenge: oh happy day!






Hello and welcome to Fusion Card Challenge!

Check out the fun new inspiration photo and sketch:



I was inspired by the photo:

cardstock:  strathmore watercolor paper  stamps:  essentials by ellen/bold blooms  ink:  ranger/archival/black  other:  queen & co stars, stampin' up label thinlets

I've been inspired by all the watercolor stripes I have been spotting out in bloggie land and had to give it a try!  I love the look...I just used my cheap watercolor tray from M's.

I finally inked up my Bold Blooms set...isn't that sentiment...well, so happy?!
