Fusion Card Challenge - Butterfly Hello

I hope you're year is off to a great start. The Fusion Card Challenge team is back from our holiday break and have a brand new challenge for you to play! It's our 4th anniversary! Can you believe it? So we have some special guests playing along too!

Here'es the inspiration.. this one is called "Mail Call".
The first thing I always look at when playing at Fusion is the inspiration photo. This one was a little tricky for me. I gravitate to the "brights" and this one has lots of brown. I focused on the aqua color and bold words.

Not loving the photo? That's ok.. just work with the sketch!

AND.. if you're feeling clever.. FUSE them together!
I kept with the sketch and reversed the colors in the photo so there's lots of blue, and less brown. To lighten the brown border even more I added a white lacy die cut (Memory Box Silver Springs Butterfly).
The sentiment is cut several times from white and topped with a blue card stock die cut. It helps keep it from disappearing into the lighter blue underneath.
Want to see more designs created from the inspiration photo? Head on over to Fusion Card Challenge where you'll find designs from the rest of the team and a linky to add your own!

Love the contrast of the dark woodgrain paper with the aqua and white. Very striking Jeanne and a fabulous card!
