Thanks Blooms

 Hi all, today's card for the new Fusion challenge was nothing like I imagined when I sat down to create.  I had great intentions of using a critter on my card but instead coloured up a NBUS stamp and made that into a card.  I took my inspiration from the bunch of flowers, the flower colours and the thanks theme.

I don't tend to Copic-colour very much now, so I decided to just colour with no expectation of a card-worthy project at the end.  But once done, I decided to cut this image with my Scan n Cut and use it for my Fusion card.

The Fog card base was foiled with a hot foil frame and the floral image added with foam tape.  The Thanks die was stacked 3 high with Cement cardstock and finished with gold foil cardstock and backed with black.

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you'll play along with us.

Ink:  Amalgam (Gina K)
Cardstock:  Fog (SSS), Black Licorice, Cement (MFT) Gold Foil, X-Press It
