Fusion #1

Here we are! It's finally time to kick off our first challenge over at Fusion.  I'm always looking for great challenges, and I have to say, I love what Jackie and Leslie have come up with. The whole concept is amazing. I really think all of you will like it too.

Here is my card:

I am on Jackie's team so I will be doing a sketch each week. For my card I used a piece of pattern paper for my chevron. After I had that part done I started looking for something that would represent the two dark squares in the sketch. I die cut a couple of butterflies, stamped them and then attached them at just the body with foam tape. Then I gently folded the wings up.

Here are this week's sketch and inspiration photo.


1.    Play with just Jackie's sketch challenge.
2.    Play with just Lesley's inspiration photo challenge.
3.    Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.
4.    Use the challenge graphic and link back to Fusion in your post.
