Fusion January 21st - Woodgrain Neutral

Hi Fusion Fans!  it's time for another Fusion Card challenge - I just love the navy blue and tan colors and dotted patterns on these flowers!
I didn't have any paper just like the flowers so I made my own - stamping Wendy Vecchi Ornate Dots onto a panel of Rustic Cream Cardstock and cutting it with Tattered Florals from Tim Holtz.  I sponged all the edges of the flowers with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, spritzed all the pieces with water and crumpled each piece up on a ball.   I opened each piece, layered them on over the other, punched a hole in the center and attached them with a Velvet Brad from Making Memories.
I die cut BIRTHDAY using Wonderful Words/Birthday die from PTI.  I glued that to the woodgrain patterned paper, stamped happy above it and adhered the flower with glue.  I layered the panel onto a slightly larger panel of Enchanted Evening and layered that onto my Rustic Cream card base.
So I was inspired by the photo and loosely followed the sketch this week!  What inspires you this fortnight? 


PROCEDURES:
1. Play with just the sketch challenge.
2. Play with just the inspiration photo challenge.
3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.
4. Use the challenge graphic and link back to Fusion in your post.
