Flutter-Pink Thanks...FUSION #12

Quick post before rushing off to work, where we're packing up our office and moving to our new location.  So excited about packing boxes...and more boxes...and more...!!

FUSION challenges:  always inspiring, always challenging, and always a delight as I see the 'creative genius' others share.  This week's sketch+photo had me flummoxed - gnome? Owl? Vase? Camera? Flowers?  Stripes and triangular banners? Where to start, never mind where to finish!  As I watched pretty, unique cards appear on the site, ideas began to gel...

My card is really simple, inspired both by the FUSION #12 elements, and the card created by Kim over at Joyful Creations with Kim.  Her "Absolutely, flowered dp, and three little owls with their wee bits of bling" is such a winning combination (as are all of her cards, no matter what she uses!!), so...I've 'kind of ' cased her card with some of my newer products: the PS Thanks die, Flap Happy butterfly, and Vintage Bliss paper.  Nothing sparkly; only another attempt at white pigment ink.  Oh, and plenty of pink. Plenty!!

Here's FUSION #12:
And my Flutter-Pink Thanks


Thanks, Kim, for the added inspiration!!

I'm delighted you dropped by! Please let me know you did; your comments are always welcome and appreciated!  Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  8. Thank you SO much for your kind words. But I have to tell you that I felt flummoxed by this one too - that gnome kept distracting me!! You have done a beautiful job with the papers and with Flap Happy (I can't believe that I still don't have that set!)
