Fusion Challenge - April 23rd - Vintage Floral

Spring has FINALLY come to Massachusetts - we are having days in the 60's and beautiful sunshine and today's Fusion Challenge is just as bright and sunny -  it makes me happy just looking at it!  How about you??
The sketch was a little bit busy for my taste - so I went with the photo - the colors, the flowers, the background and vintage look.  First, I stenciled my back panel with Wendy Vecchi's Basically Bricks stencil and Archival Dandelion Ink.  The blooms and sentiment are from Old Country Roses and the seed packet is from Vintage Garden Seed Packet - both by Waltzingmouse.  I popped everything up on foam dots. 
I hope you are inspired by this fun new Fusion Challenge and that you link up your creation over at the Fusion Blog  - where you will also find some wonderful inspiration from the rest of the Fusion Design Team!

Ink:  Archival Jet Black, Wendy Vecchi Archival Dandelion, Ranger Distress Mustard Seed, Rusty Hinge, Fired Brick, Peeled Paint, Pine Needles;  Pure Poppy - PTI
