Fusion Card Challenge - September 25th

Hurray - it's Thursday!  And time once again for a new Fusion Challenge -  Isn't this a bright and sunny inspiration photo!  I can just feel the warmth -  and that sketch is clean and simple - just the way I like them - so easy to create a card with.
Oddly enough -  I turned this summer flower inspiration into a Thanksgiving card!  And I used the sketch as well - using a slightly larger circle to accommodate my stenciled bloom!
I stenciled the bloom and foliage using Wendy Vecchi's From the Garden stencil inking it with Archival inks, Orange Blossom, Dandelion, Leaf Green and Fern Green.  I die cut the circle with a Nestability and sponged the edges with Ranger Distress Rusty Hinge.  I added the Blossom Bucket Gold Berry flower center to the middle of the bloom.  The two panels are DP from Autumn Abundance - PTI.  I die cut the leaf panel with Stitched Mat Rectangle from Lil' Inker Designs.  The sentiment is from Thanksgiving Wishes - stamped on a stitched banner die - both from Lil' Inker Designs.
I hope you will be inspired to join us in this Fusion Challenge!   Here are links to the Design Team so you can see what they have created!
