Birthday Bunnies and Flourish Hello...FUSION Card Challenge~Hello Cards

Hello!

My husband and I are having a lovely, though sweltering hot, little vacation. So nice to get away and just...well, hang out at bike races, because that's what we do!

Before heading on our trip, I squeezed in a couple of cards for the oh-so-lovely photo and inviting sketch for the new FUSION Card Challenge~Hello Cards.  The hello cards...swooning!
As oft is my way, I went 'out there' with my first card,using a fusion of the colours from the photo with the sketch. Pastel birthday Strike Up the Band bunnies from MFT...They make me laugh!


To reel myself in a bit, I also created a second card; again a fusion, but this time with Concord & 9th's Flourish set....


Please head over to see the brilliant, beautiful makes by my wonderful design team:

Looking forward to seeing your designs in the FUSION gallery!

Love your flourish card so much that I checked out the stamp set and then went to pinterest to see other flourish cards. Your card is the best and there is a card that was done in white that comes in second.

Both cards are great, but I just love the "Flourish" card. That set is on my wishlist at Simon Says Stamp. Thanks for the great inspiration!
