Fusion - Orange Teal & Brown

Hi!  How are you doing?  I've been keeping busy! Winter is still going strong here.  We had a few warmer days that melted some of the snow away, so the streets are clean. The grass is still covered with snow, and for the most part it just looks dingy and dirty.  I'm sure looking forward to spring!  

Looking for a challenge?  A new one begins at Fusion Card Challenge.  Check out the photo!  We're calling it "Orange, Teal & Brown".  Originally when I saw the photo I was going to make a masculine card, but Ahhhh... there is a vase of flowers in the photo and that's where I took it!   OK So back into my comfort zone right?  I can't help it!  I just love flowers!!!     Remember -  It's Fusion - so you don't have to use the photo for inspiration - you can use the sketch if you like.   I tried to "fuse" them together! 

I will admit I'm afraid of colors like grey and brown.  I really need to embrace them as neutrals. I'm learning and my comfort zone needs a good shock every now and then to get me to try something new.
 Did you check out those wood grain sequins?  Those are new at Serendipity and I'm using them on just about everything!   Getting more comfortable with adding a bit of washi here and there too!

Want to see what the rest of the team did with this one?  Check out their personal blogs by clicking their names below - or hop on over to Fusion Card Challenge where we'll be looking for your projects!  You have two weeks to play!

Have a great day!
