Fusion Challenge - Feb 26 - Bow Tie

Welcome to the next Fusion Challenge - today we have some wonderful pastel colors to inspire us - I know I'm DONE with winter - having one snow storm after another here in MA this month with piles of snow over 6 feet everywhere!
I was inspired by the patterned bow ties - and immediately thought of my Small Bow Die from Lil Inker Designs.  I made a masculine birthday card - using a frame stamp from My Kind of Guy by Waltzingmouse and a Handwritten Sentiment from Tim Holtz.
Here's what I stamped on the inside - using stamps from the same sets I used on the front.  I also added two strips of the DP I used for the bow tie on the front.
How will you be inspired this fortnight??  Bowties, colors, stars, sketch??!!  Can't wait to see the creation you link up! You'll find inspiration from all of the Design Team - plus all the details of the challenge and Mr Linky - over at the Fusion Blog.


Stamps:  My Kind of Guy - Waltzingmouse, Hand Written Sentiments - Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous
Paper:  White, Simply Chartreuse, DP Distressed Dots - PTI
Ink:  Wendy Vecchi Archival Fern Green,  Archival Jet Black
Accessories:  Bow Die Small - Lil Inker Designs, Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive.
