Happy Birthday Fusion Style

Hello Friends! Happy Saturday. Hope you are doing something fun this weekend. We'll be hanging out enjoying our 70 degree weather. As nice as the weather is it would be nice to have some rain.

I found a new challenge (new to me) called the Fusion Card Challenge. The inspiration photo fit the bell so well with the papers I had on my table I went ahead and played along. I took my own liberties with the sketch, turning it and not quite lining up my 3 elements, but isn't that what a sketch is all about?

I love this little bicycle stamp.  Unfortunately the company is no longer in business. That seems to be happening more and more these days which is sad. Though I've also noticed a few new stamp companies popping up online which is good.

And the envelope please..excited about Award season anyone? I used to watch them but now I just catch the highlights when I can. I love looking at the gowns and jewels. 

Here is the inspiration and sketch photo for the first challenge of the year. Pretty cool huh? Love the colors in that room, I'd love to live in that room!

Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate it!

  1. Look at this! Such a cute and finished card ensemble! First, that card is really cute, with such a great take on the sketch. Love how you made the sketch your own and turned it and moved the three elements around. finished the envelope! I need to do that more often...such a beautiful touch and something that is quickly understood how much time, effort and love went into it before it is even opened!
