Fusion Card Challenge - Cactus Arrangement

Looking for a challenge to play? Check out the new Fusion Card Challenge that begins today! Fusion is a fun and unique challenge because they offer both a sketch and a photo for inspiration.
The photo this time is colorful and rustic at the same time. I love the tall cactus surrounding the distressed door, and the mix of green and blue. Not loving the photo? That's ok.. you can work with the sketch. If you're feeling clever you can FUSE the sketch and the photo together! Here's what I made.. 
The cactus arrangement is from Waffle Flower called "Potted". I colored the image with Copic Markers and then fussy cut it. 
The background is a watercolor paper panel smooshed with Peacock Feathers distress ink. I die cut the panel with Memory Box Wrapped Stitched Rectangles.
The fussy cut cactus image is adhered with adhesive foam tape. The sentiment is stamped on a die cut Poppystamps Stitched Mainstreet Tag and attached with a pin from the sewing department of the local craft store.
Now it's your turn! I sure hope you can join us! Feeling stuck? That's ok - the design team has lots of samples to give you a little help.
