Fusion Card Challenge - August 14th

Hi all -  it's another Thursday - AND it comes with another Fusion Card Challenge!  You guys outdid yourselves with the Beach House theme and sketch on the last challenge - what great cards you all shared! 
So here is this week's challenge -  a vase of bright florals and an easy paneled sketch to inspire you!  You can make a card inspired by the photo,  or the sketch -  OR do a FUSION and use both on your card!
and here's the card I created - once again being inspired by the photo AND the sketch.
I cut panels of Coredinations Distress papers - I love the texture it gives even though it's open space - I also sponged the edges of the papers with Ranger Distress Mustard Seed Ink.  The blooms are from that wonderful WPlus9 set- Fresh Cut Florals and I used the coordinating die set to cut them out.  I love all the cards I see out in blog land using this set - and I don't get it out often enough!  The florals look so pretty layered together - don't they?!  I used foam dots to pop some of them up and dangled one off the edge of the MFT Die cut Sentiment Strip.  I finished my card with 3 sequins from Avery Elle.
What speaks to you from this week's Fusion Card Challenge?   Check out all the details and find the link up here.
