Fusion Card Challenge & SALES!

Hi friends! I hope you're having a great day! A new challenge begins today at Fusion Card Challenge! It's a great place to play and you'll love this challenge because there are three ways to play.. you can play along with the sketch, be inspired by the photo, or FUSE them together and play with BOTH!
I'm typically drawn to the inspiration photo.. the inspiration photo this time is called Christmas Chalkboard. This one reminds me of the board they write restaurant specials on. I love the fonts and cute images.. If you're not loving the photo, don't forget.. there are other ways to play along!
1. The inspiration photo2. The sketch
3. Color challenge
4. Fuse them all together (you clever one!)

It's your choice, but I sure hope that you choose to play!
My card starts with a black piece of cardstock that I stenciled with white ink using the pine branches from the Layered Christmas Lights Stencil set. Next I shifted the stencil slightly and applied white texture paste. This gives the inky part a shadow appearance. When the paste was dry I added a light brush of white pigment ink.
Next I added a blue mug (like the the one in the photo) and embellished it with some Winter Foliage Die Cuts. A Pine Tree is added behind the cup - again mimicking the images on the chalkboard. It also helps define the area and keeps the cup from blending into the background.
A sweet mixed font sentiment using the Holiday Scripts set and a sprinkle of sequins and this one is DONE!
Now it's your turn! I can't wait to see how you interpret the inspiration photo OR the sketch. Maybe you need a little more inspiration? Check out designs from the rest of the team. Just click on their names below to jump to their blogs.

I hope I see you at Fusion Card Challenge! It's a great place to play and make new friends! I'm always inspired by the team as well as the linked up designs!

I want to also wish you a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING and let you know about a few SALES! I dont' know about you but I've been holding out for this week!
