Fusion Birthday Celebration - Winter Wishes

Are you falling back into the regular routine yet?   Me either!  LOL!  My son isn't back in school yet - and my husband has had some time off.. so while the guys are home I guess I'm going to stray!  Lots of your favorite challenges are BACK!  Including Fusion Card Challenge!  They're celebrating their birthday so we've got lots of guest designers this time!  

Check our the challenge this time!  It's FUSION so you can work with the inspiration photo OR the sketch.. and if you're feeling clever just FUSE them together!    The photo is dreamy.. perfect for a winter day.. I love all the contrast on this one.. hot drinks in a snowy setting,  the pop of red against the white background. 


I tried to mix the sketch and the photo together.  From the photo I grabbed the wood grain background, tree branches and pop of red.  I even snuck in a coffee cup!  The stamps are from Pretty Pink Posh Christmas Friends set.
The Trim Tree die cut is from Poppystamps.  I thought a pretty bow and another cardinal would add some balance and color to the design.  I added a Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Scallop Border along each side of the center panel.  I like adding a little bit of solid paper to break up patterns. 
The girlie on the card is feeding the birds.  If you look close you'll see a sprinkle of micro beads adhered along the bottom of the card. 
I hope you'll stop by Fusion Card Challenge and see what the rest of the team made.  Remember it's our birthday so we have some very special guests joining us too!   I think you'll love seeing all the different visions of this challenge!

Completely smitten with your sweet card, Jeanne, especially since the little girl very much resembles my niece! Love the woodgrain background...checking it out! Will send a 'real' note soon; need to get 're-acclimatized' to being back here after spending such a fabulous break at my mom's....
