Fusion Card Challenge - March 27th

It's another Thursday and that brings us a new Fusion Challenge!  Look at the cool inspiration photo we have today - AND the terrific sketch!  We continue to have a wonderful response to the Fusion challenges with so many beautiful creations linked up and I think this one will inspire as well!
I'm so proud of myself this week (!?!) - I actually combined the photo and sketch on my card!  (Yay me!)  The dress form in the picture reminded me I had a stamp set and die from PTI  that would be perfect to use for my card.
I started my card by cutting the base with a stitched mat rectangle die which I then sponged using a brick wall stencil from MFT with both Pumice Stone and Fired Brick Distress inks.  I cut another smaller stitched rectangle out of both card stock and Terminology Tissue Wrap - and adhered them together.  I then die cut an oval Nestability placing the dress form die inside the oval when I cut it.   I sponged the edges of the oval with Pumice Stone Distress Ink and layered it over the text panel.  As a nod to the orange scarf in the image - I layered a piece of orange burlap behind the text panel.  I stamped the sentiment on a stitched mat gray panel and tucked it under the edge of the text panel.
How does this photo and sketch inspire you?!!  I can't wait to see it linked up over at Fusion!
  You'll find lots of inspiration on the Design Team's blogs linked below!
