New Fusion...

Thursday, February 13, 2014

Hello, my friends!  Boy...I thought I'd just be celebrating away with Papertrey this week, but...not so!  It's turned out to be such a busy week...barely getting the 'have to' list done, let alone the 'want to' list.  Oh well...I did enjoy putting a card together for Fusion's new challenge that starts today...

I never pass up an excuse to use a pretty butterfly...and that photo inspiration has reminded me that winter won't last forever after all...


I even used the sketch a little, although I was pretty loosey-goosey with it.  While I was playing around with my design, I couldn't get that circular focal point off to the right out of my head.  Then it only seemed natural to draw my stamping out to mimic the border across the middle.  And I guess that's about where that whole sketch plan ended...it DID inspire me though...


I likey!  That's all some old stuff you're lookin' at, but...it worked for me!;) We'd love it if you played along with us this week or next...you've got plenty of time!  You'll find all the details at the Fusion blog, and more inspiration from my talented teammates!  Enjoy, and we hope you'll join us!


Thanks so much for your visit!

  3. Super elegant Geri! Blue and green look awesome together. That strip of patterned paper (or is it washi) adds a lot of interest to your card.

  12. This is so pretty, Geri! I like to study it, even though it's a CAS design, there are many thoughtful details, like the flowers behind the frame. You always do nice work. :)
