Fusion Challenge - April 9th - Elegance

Wow - this Fusion Challenge just jumped right up on me -  I was thinking there was one more week for the last challenge -  time sure flies!!  May I present this fortnight's lovely new challenge to you?!
This week, I was inspired by the red, blue and silver colors, the vase, the scalloped dish and the red note on the blue bag!
I layered a piece of Correspondence DP over a Brushed Silver panel.  Then die cut the scalloped 'tray' from Reverse Confetti and adhered it to the panels.
I used a Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers die to cut my trophy and ribbon, layering Foil Tape over Grungeboard  and then die cutting them to give them both some solidity!  I colored the prize ribbon with Watermelon Alcohol Ink and added some Remnant Rubs/Life Quotes to the center.
The sentiment is a sticker from Small Talk/Idea-ology.  At the end,  I wanted to tone down the shine a bit, so I sprayed the whole thing with a couple of shots of Dylusions White Linen Spray -  that's always so tricky to do - it's so easy to ruin a project with too much spray!!

We hope you will join us in this new Fusion Challenge -  I can't wait to see what inspired you from the photo and/or skecth!

Love this card, Julia! It's so uplifting and fun :) I know what you mean with the White Linen ink spray--But I've got a saying...When in doubt, leave it out! Got that from my days in radio broadcasting and I can apply successfully in crafting, too :) But, sometimes, I don't listen!! LOL :) :) Good luck at the Fusion Challenge! XOXO-Shari
