Fusion #4

Well I had a few minutes to 'surf the net' this morning, minutes turn into hours and surfing turns into "new to me" challenges. I found the Fusions Card Challenge and thought I would give it a try....never met a challenge I didn't like so....off to the Butterfly Garden to make a card. For this particular challenge 'time was of the essence'...the link closed in 2 hours and 45 minutes.....YIKES...it usually takes me 2 hours to brain storm an idea. I just completed my card from 'start to finish' and have 1 hour and 18 ,17, 16 minutes left. How do some people do 10 minute challenges???



Stamps are PTI and Printworks, embossing folder is Sizzix and coloring was done with Copic markers. Foam tape was used under the leaves for a little dimension.


I fused the two challenges. What a wonderful 'new, innovative' way to get those creative juices flowing. Thanks for creating this 'new to me' challenge!!!

Lydal from "dreams & other realities" just introduced me to another 'new to me' challenge....it is called Catered Crop - recipies for papercrafting, the challenge is......Embossing - Make an Impression. Thanks, Lydal!!! If you haven"t been to either the Catered Crop or Lydals blog...please visit soon. Great inspiration on both of these blogs.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
