Fusion Challenge - Dec 4th

Welcome to December (can you believe it??!!) and to this week's Fusion Challenge.  This will be our final challenge for 2014, but we will be back on January 1st, 2015 with a brand new challenge! Here's wishing a Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate!
This challenge will run until Tuesday, December 23rd...so you have lots of time to join us!
I love pine cones for winter cards so I knew I wanted to use them on my Fusion card today - so my inspiration came from the photo for this challenge.
The pine cones are from Festive Foliage which I cut with Pine Cones Die set.  The bow stamp is from Candy Jar Christmas Fillers that I fussy cut and layered over the pine cones with foam tape.  The label behind the pine cones is a die -  Pretty Panels #2.  The sentiment is from Seasonal Flourish.  All the stamps and dies are from Waltzingmouse -  accept for the Stitched Mat Square die used to die cut the front panel which is from Lil Inker Designs.
I brushed Glitter Glaze from MFT over the pine cones so they have quite a glittery shimmer IRL - not sure you get the full effect in the photo!

I hope you'll join us in this last Fusion Challenge for 2014 and that we'll see you again in the New Year!

Please take a minute to check out the rest of the Design Team to see how they were inspired this week!
