Fusion Card Challenge - May 26 - Something Blue

It's the season for wedding bells to start ringing - and the Fusion Card Challenge has inspiration for us if we are in the need of wedding cards!  OR you can be inspired by the colors, the flowers or just the sketch!  Lot's of fun options!
I've been needing more wedding cards for my stash - so I was inspired by the layers of cake and the blue florals - I also used a sentiment banner so that's a little nod to the sketch!
I layered two stitched edge dies over the white card base to represent the layers of the cake.  I was lucky enough to WIN this lovely stamp and die set by Winnie and Walter from the Coffee Lovers Spring Blog hop - and I just love it!  The stamps are two step -  outline and solid color.  I used both on the leaves but only used the outline on the rose, coloring it with a Ranger Distress Marker so I could leave some of it white.  I added some Glitter Clear Wink of Stella for sparkle.
Here's what I stamped on the inside - the sentiment is from a company no longer in business and I stamped the Winnie and Walter leaves above it.
What inspires you this week?  Please join us by linking your card over at the Fusion Card Challenge - and check out all of the wonderful inspiration from the Design Team!
