Guesting at Fusion

A fabulous new challenge has come to town, Fusion, and I'm lucky to be guesting the very first week!

Creators Jackie Rockwell and Lesley Croghan (LOVE both of these ladies!!) state this on their new blog:

The concept behind FUSION is as simple as 1, 2, 3! There will be THREE Challenges offered each week!
  1. Lesley will offer an Inspiration photo...
  2. Jackie will offer a Sketch...
  3. Or you can combine both Lesley and Jackie's challenges and create FUSION!!

Here is Challenge #1:
My assignment is to create based on Lesley's challenge photo of that gorgeous cake, and here's the result:


My beloved - but rarely inked - Baby Blossoms set from Stampin' Up! is the star here, followed by a Hero Arts sentiment.  Had to use the Stampamajig LOTS here for all that two-step stamping.  ;-)

Doesn't this challenge just give you all kinds of ideas??  Come play with us!  For all the details and place to link up your card, click HERE.

Thank you so, so much for visiting today!

Paper: white - PTI
