Fusion 2nd Anniversary - Guest Designer!

Imagine how happy I was when I received a sweet little invitation from Michelle Williams - that's Amusing Michelle - to be her guest designer for the Fusion 2nd Anniversary Celebration?   SO honored ... it is one of my favorite challenges.

Check out the fabulous photo/sketch I had the honor of working with - can we really call this work?

An old favorite wood-mount stamp from Stampendous: Ranunculi - called to me.  oh I adore it.   This time I paired it with a darling chevron patterned paper to mimic the table runner - can you believe this? how did they know I cannot resist table linens? -  leaving a bright white margin on either side of the card to represent the table.  I've even pulled out a few enamel dots in their honor ... that is something to celebrate!

... is yet to come! 
Congratulations on your 2nd Anniversary!!
 
Thank you, Michelle, and Fusion, for having me as your guest!  What a thrill for me to celebrate YOU!  I so look forward to 'playing cards' with you in 2016!

Supplies:
Stampendous Ranunculi
Avery Elle Laurels provided the perfect sentiment
Avery Elle Sweet Scallops large oval
PPP small oval
Amy Tangerine Rise & Shine paper - thank you Deepti

Congratulations on your birthday GD spot at Fusion, Michele! You know I love seeing you work your magic with this ranunculus stamp ... the loose colouring is soft and gorgeous ... and you've given it just the perfect platform against the chevron table runner! A beautiful take on the inspiration! Hugs, Anita :)

Your flowers are just beautiful, Michele! I love how you played with your chevron papers in honor of that gorgeous tablecloth, and how you captured the sketch in your design, as well! Such a beautiful card! I'm so happy Michelle shared your other lovely card with us...both are perfect!

Perfect Fusion of photo and sketch as a guest designer, Michele. I think I have that stamp in my Michele folder and had yet to use it. I'd better drag it out.
