Fusion Throwdown

Whew!  I crept in with seconds to spare on this challenge! This card uses the colours from The Colour Throwdown and the sketch from the Fusion challenge.  The Throwdown colours matched this Pebbles paper perfectly so I had to use it.  I'm usually not so good at working patterned paper into colour challenges so I'm feeling pretty chuffed about it.  Sorry to be short but there's dinner to be made so I'm off.  Have a good evening!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Kraft) Papertrey Ink,  (Daffodil Delight, Pool Party) Stampin' Up, (Green) DCWV, (Blue) Paperbilities
Patterned Paper:  (Family Ties) Pebbles
Stamp:  (Sentiment from Big & Bold Wishes) Papertrey Ink
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Nesties Classic Squares Large) Spellbinders, (Turning A New Leaf) Papertrey Ink
Punches:  (1", 1 1/2" & 2" flowers) Woodware Craft Collection, (1/4" hole punch) McGill
Gem:  (Swimming Pool assortment) Doodlebug

I do like it when a patterned paper takes care of a colour challenge for me. :D But of course, you did much more here with the sweet flower and *big* sentiment!
