Fusion - March 26th

Well -  we're 6 days into Spring and although we have been having sun here in MA - we still have lots of snow on the ground and cold temps!   There's one spot at the side door of my church that is protected and gets the warm sun and the daffodils and hyacinths planted there are just poking their green tips out of the ground so I do have hope!!!

It's also time for the next Fusion Challenge -  and it's a bright and sunny one!
A friend at church asked me to make a First Easter card for a new granddaughter so I figured I could get two assignments done with one card by using the Fusion Challenge for inspiration.  I'm not that big on using cupcakes on my cards for some reason (?!) but I was going to go with bright yellow for Spring and Easter -  but when I went looking for papers to use, the ones I decided on didn't have much yellow on them -  so my card became pretty much just the sketch!
The egg and bunny stamp are from A Good Egg and the Easter is from Spring Baskets (it's a partial stamping of a stamp that says Easter Blessings)both by Waltzingmouse.  The Happy First is a another partial stamping (the stamp says Happy First Birthday) from the Bitty Baby Blessings set from PTI.  The egg and flower dies are from A Good Egg die set by Waltzingmouse and the big oval is from Tim Holtz Alterations - Sized Ovals/Large.  The sentiment strip is from MFT (LOVE these dies!).  Everything is popped up on foam dots. The striped paper is from a paper pad from PTI called Watercolor Wonder - it has 9 wonderful patterns in it (4 - 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" sheets of each pattern) - you could make a card with just these papers and a sentiment stamp!

So how will you be inspired by this week's Fusion Challenge -  will you choose the yellow and/or cupcakes?  the sketch?  or will you do a Fusion and combine the two??  

You'll find all the details of the challenge and the link to link up your creation over at the Fusion Challenge Blog.
