Fusion Challenge - Feb 18 - Pretty in Pink

There's a new challenge up at the Fusion Card Challenge Blog.  Just what we need here in the Northern Hemisphere where winter has it's grip on us!  Take a look a the lovely spring colors on the pillows of the inspiration photo!
I went totally with the photo this time using the colors and flowers for my inspiration.  I got out the PTI horizontal stripes coverplate for the background - stamping this wonderful sentiment from Birthday Cheer directly on the die cut.  I layered it over a Hibiscus Burst card base.
I die cut the flowers out of cardstock and patterened paper using Spring Flowers dies from Lil Inker Designs - layering them with foam dots and adding rhinestones to the centers for a little shine!
So please join in with us and link your card over at the Fusion Card Challenge.
What inspires you this week - the photo or the sketch - or will you do a FUSION and join the two?!??
Here also are links to the talented Design Team blogs!

Hi Julia,

LOVE your card - the background is crisp and structured so the florals on the front really flow nicely. It's beautiful you used patterned paper on the leaves (IF you made them, perhaps they came this way).

I hope winter loosens its grip on you - I live in Canada (British Columbia) and we have had very mild temps, practically NO snow - and my sister who lives at the coast has full on bulbs blooming! I have been listening to BBC a lot on my iPhone and so I do hear your weather broadcasts, wow. Sending you a WARM Canadian hug.
