Fusion: You are the most amazing FRIEND


Post 1 of 2 for today...click HERE for Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.


Hello and Happy Thursday!

2. Play with just the 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.
5. Please read the other considerations on the Our Rules Page before playing along
.

Super beautiful, don't you think?!  Who doesn't love a great Teal & Yellow combo?!

Here's how I was inspired, I decided to use the color combo this time:


cardstock:  recollections/aqua, stampin' up hello honey, papertrey ink vellum  stamps:  essentials by ellen/bohemian garden & amazing women  ink:  ranger/archival/black, hero arts white dauber, fresh ink harvest  other:  american crafts chalk marker, your next stamp gum drops

I love that cake and designed a tall & skinny card!

I used Essentials by Ellen/Bohemian Gardens!  The white detail in the middle of the bloom is an American Crafts chalk marker that I picked up in the T$ spot!  Do you see the faint white polkas on the white base?!  I used my Hero Arts white dauber...it's to soften up all the bold black ink that I used.  The sentiments?  Essentials by Ellen/Amazing Women!

I even decorated the interior.  Let me share a secret.  I thought I grabbed a sheet of Stampin' Up Coastal Cabana and didn't really pay attention.  It seems I grabbed a Recollections sheet that feels like 40 lb weight....adding the extra panel on the interior helps, a smidge.



Make sure you check out the Fusion Design Team!
