Addicted to Fusion...


First off - Happy St. George's Day to all my fellow country folk!  :)

Now on to my post proper; 

...the Fusion Challenge

Despite the gorgeous inspiration image and the very pretty sketch, I struggled a bit with the Fusion experiment this week.  The problem was that I had an idea in my head and for the life of me I could not make it translate onto a card!  Partly because I didn't have the right tools, but mostly because I just couldn't work it!

So...I decided to go with just the inspiration image - it's stunning!

...and my card...

...what do ya think?  I'm also entering this into the challenge over at Addicted To CAS this week as the code word is FLOWER.  

This is going into the CAS-ual Fridays Birthday Bash challenge too :)

Thanks for stopping by ;)

Card:     Paper Mill Direct - White,Black, Raspberry Pink
Stamps: Verve - Elegant Flower Plain Jane; Stamping All Day - Art Deco Birthday
Ink:       Ranger - Perfect Medium
