Merry Christmas with Fusion

Hi everyone. An unexpected post for me today. Why? I decided to have a look around at the challenge available to enter at the moment and crafted just for fun. 

I have been talking to a couple of friends/teamies from ATSM and discussing what sort of challenges inspire us. High on the list were photo challenges and then at some point a sketch may help with the inspiration. 

I decided to have my first go at playing over at Fusion. Here we have a sketch and a photo to help us. I know this is a popular challenge among my friends but I have never had a chance to play along.

Here is the inspiration that Fusion has to offer -

I decided to go the whole hog and use BOTH :)

The colours in the photo are so lovely and would be perfect for a Christmas Card. I used the red, brown and cream colours and also Distress Ink (Antique Linen) around the edges of my card to symbolise the distressed look of the wood in the photo.

Here is my card -

I couldn't resist adding the stars (like in the photo) as I have just got some new Lil' Inker dies in the mail. The sentiment is from SU and was embossed with Cherry Cobbler powder. I substituted the banner on the sketch for twine.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges -

A Creative Romance - A Touch of Kraft
Marinas Christmas Card Challenge
Allsorts - Early Christmas makes

Thanks so much for looking xx
