FUSION Card Challenge One Year Anniversary Celebration


Have you heard the news? FUSION Card Challenge is celebrating their One Year Anniversary!
Sweet and talented Kimberly Wiener invited me to be her guest and I was thrilled to accept.

If you're not familiar with FUSION, use either the photo or the sketch, 
or both, to create your card. Here's the challenge graphic:

Feeling super inspired by the photo, I created TWO cards for the challenge.
Here's my first.


I used one stamp set--WPlus9's Twenty Fifteen and created a New Year's card.
The sentiment was white embossed on watercolor paper and I dabbed several colors
of distress inks over it for the resist effect.

The small and medium sized triangle images were stamped in gold ink once,
and gold embossed a second time to resemble banners.
I finished off the card with gold spatters of ink and a few sequins.
 

For my second card, I was inspired by the chalkboard in the background.
I used the same WPlus9 stamp and created a chalkboard flag.
The banners were created with a Reverse Confetti die, cut from
watercolored paper and metallic cardstock.


Visit FUSION Card Challenge for all the details and deadline, and to see
how the rest of the design team and their guests were inspired,
and join the challenge if you can. Also, visit Kimberly's blog to see her card.
I'm sure she rocked the challenge as she always does.

Thanks, Kimberly, for the honor of guesting with you--I had a blast!
