Happy Monday and a card for the Fusion Card Challenge

Hi everyone!! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Ours was filled with company and we had so much fun!! Antiquing, going out to dinner, watching a movie, going to Ikea-just so busy and a lot of laughs. I don't have enough weekends like that.

Today I had the day off and was FINALLY able to create something for the Fusion Card Challenge. I had stamped my elements last weekend but never had the time to put together anything last week. I used PaperTrey Ink's "Cup of Cheer" set for all my stamped elements.

I actually created two cards for the challenge. I chose to use both the sketch and the photo as my inspiration. I really wanted the coffee pot and cups to be more of a red but the color is really more of a pink. I don't like to waste things so I chose to use them anyway.

For the first card, I used a piece of wood patterned paper scrap and a circle behind my tableau. The wood bench in the photo was my inspiration for the use of this paper.

I stacked the coffee pot and cups together over a Kraft card stock circle to ground them.

I did not use any sequins on this, which was a first for me!! I really wanted it to be a more simple card.

For my second card, I still used the sketch but eliminated the circle behind the elements.

I probably should have flipped the sketch and put all the elements on the right side but I was taking a bit of a leap!!

I grounded the cups and coffee pot by stamping the sentiment on a banner rather then right on the patterned paper this time to mix it up a bit.

So happy that I finished these in time and was able to blog about it. I am trying to be better at blogging this year.

I thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a fabulous night!!
