Purple Hugs

 I'm here with my card for the latest Fusion challenge and this time I've created a fusion of sketch and photo.

I went digging through my patterned paper to find some purples and came up with these.  I would have preferred a darker purple but this was all I had.  I cut them to match the sketch and adhered them to a white card base.  From there, I added thin strips of black cardstock to separate the patterns.

The sentiment die was die-cut three times - twice from purple and once from black.  I off-set the black die-cut slightly to create a shadow.  The secondary sentiment was stamped with black ink and comes from a set by The Ton.

Finally, I finished with some black enamel dots.  Thanks for visiting.  Please head over to the challenge blog and check out the fabulous cards made by the DT.
