Fusion #1 & CFC # 97 ~ Thanks!

Well hello! Did you know there's a new card challenge in town, it's called Fusion. They give you two choices, a sketch and an inspiration photo. You can pick either one or you can combine the two for fusion! Sounded interesting to me so I thought I would play along. For their first challenge I decided to go for fusion! Since I have chevrons and flowers I'm playing along with CAS-ual Fridays too!


Now you would think with all of the stamps, paper, washi and so on and so on that I have, there would have been some chevrons among the bunch. There was a bit of paper but it was the wrong color. What to do, what to do??? I had an Einstein moment...and kerpow fusion!!! I would use a single sentiment word to make my own chevrons!  I like the way it turned out too, hope you do! For the dark areas of the sketch I stamped an Impression Obsession bouquet of forget me nots and colored them using the photo colors then punched them out. To mimic the ruffly cake plate I backed them with a circle scallop punch. And that's it! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today, have a delightful weekend ~Lisa
