Fusion Blooms


How pretty is this week's Fusion picture?  I love the yellow and grey against that light woodgrain and took that as my main inspiration (I wasn't really feeling the sketch this week).  I've been looking for a reason to use my new Sweet Stamp Shop Elegant Bloom flowers and this was the perfect opportunity! I love that Papertrey Ink tag and don't use it enough so I broke it out and gave it some love.  I know there's no turquoise in the picture but I'm going a little rogue - that paper just called out to me as I flipped through the pad.  Can't wait to go and see the rest of the entries - it's always a gorgeous gallery!

I love your take on the inspiration photo...the paper piecing is awesome and I love the pop of turquoise. So glad you could play along with us at Fusion Jen!

This is wonderful, Jen. Nothing says you can't add another color and I think that turquoise really adds to the card. I love the background paper, too.

Watch out, Jen's going rogue! I love it! I think, honestly, that the pop of torquoise is perfect with the muted grays and yellows this week. A beautiful card!
