Fusion - So Proud

Are you looking for a new challenge to play today? Check out this one from Fusion Card Challenge!
This inspiration photo looked so masculine to me. I usually gravitate to color, but this one is all black and white with a touch of wood.. a real challenge for me.
I stuck to the sketch for the most part, switching out the flag for a Tall Triangle shape. I cut the die from shades of grey to pickup on the stripes on the rug in the photo.
For my bit of wood grain I added wood veneer stars. 
The clean sentiment is from Reverse Confetti Simple Sentiments. I added a bit of silver because I just have to have a little bling! This clean design was a treat to discover as came together.

Sugar Pea Designs Challenge - Egg-a-licious

Do you love Sugar Pea Designs? Then you need to join us for our monthly Mix It Up Challenge! It's a great way to spark your creativity, and who knows? You might just win a gift certificate to the store for playing along! Here's this month's challenge! 
You can choose from the inspiration photo, sketch, or color scheme to play along!
I focused on all those yummy colorful treats and turned them into colorful Easter Eggs from the Egg-a-licious stamp set. 
The sticks in the photo inspired me to arranged the colorful eggs on a clean lined background.
If you look close you'll see I stamped pastel dots on the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle panel. I also addded some pink dots with a copic marker. The little bunny is fussy cut - the coordinating die is for the egg shape only. 
I know this one is going to make someone very happy!

Need more inspiration? You can find more samples from the team, and get all the directions on how to link up your own card here on the Sugar Pea Designs Blog! I can't wait to see what you make!

Have a great day!
