Fusion - I Say A Prayer

It's time for a brand new Fusion Card Challenge!  I love playing challenges whenever I can.  I really enjoy seeing the inspiration photo or sketch through different eyes.  It's what makes us all interesting and unique.   Normally I am attracted to the inspiration photo before the sketch.  I can look at a photo and sometimes (if lightning strikes) I'll know exactly what stamp set or die I want to work with.   

Somehow this time I wasn't feeling the stacked chairs.  I do have several chair dies, but it wasn't coming together for me.   Looking at the chairs a little closer I picked up on the woodwork on their backs.  It looked intricate with lots of open areas like a die cut.   I was also attracted to their pretty colors.

Here's what I made this time.. 

I started with a watercolor panel.  I used bright rainbow colors like the ones on the chairs.  I topped that with a pretty, intricate panel die from Reverse Confetti.  This one is called Leaves.

The stamped flowers are from Blooms 'n Buds.  This is a two step flower - I used only the detail stamp on a plain white card stock coordinating die cut. I love the drama of the black on white. 

The sentiment is from the My Heart Trusts set.  It's got me singing Dione Warwick "I say a little prayer for you".. am I showing my age?
