Hi and welcome back to another fabulous Fusion Challenge! And this one is a big one - it's our 2nd Anniversary and to celebrate, each DT member has invited a fellow card-maker to create a card using the sketch or photo. I chose to invite Sonja Kerkhoffs, whose work I have long admired and who frequently plays along with Fusion.
And here is the challenge:
For my card, I used both the photo and sketch and came up with a bright and cheerful card.
I started by stenciling the Zig Zag Dots stencil onto the top portion of the card base, using embossing paste colored with Squeezed Lemonade distress ink. To show some separation from the rest of the card base, I adhered a sliver of black cardstock. While that was drying, I colored some of the images from Blissful Blooms and arranged them into a wee bouquet.
I die-cut an oval and also the Hugs word, which I colored with Wink of Stella.
Then all that remained was to arrange everything on the card base and add a few sequins.
Thanks for visiting. Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team and our fabulous guests and I hope you'll have time to join us.
