Fusion Challenge

Good Evening,

Well that is my Christmas and New Year holidays over and back to work tomorrow. If I said I was looking forward to it that would be an understatement, however I'm sure once I am there I will be fine.

However some good news is that the Fusion Challenge blog is back and better than ever. They even have some fab new Design Team members, including my talented CASology teamate Kimberly.  Since I haven't played along with Fusion for quite some time, I thought I would join in.

Supplies Used:
Uniko Studio - Background Builders - Lattice
Stampin Up - Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Stampin Up - Morning Meadow
Lil Inkers - Stitched Mats

With the Fusion challenge, you can either use the inspiration photo, the sketch or both.  For this card I used the pattern on the cushions and colours featured in the photo.

That's it from me for today, got to get organised for work tomorrow.

Thanks for visiting
