Welcome to another fabulous Fusion challenge!  Today we have a fun Spring/Easter themed photo and a versatile sketch for you to play along with.

I created a fusion with my card and focused on the flowers in the photo to create this card.

The flowers are a digi from Power Poppy that I colored during the last Daily Marker 30-day coloring challenge.  I die-cut the image with a pierced square die and matted it onto a black panel.  I then die-cut a pierced flag from vellum and adhered that, using an enamel dot to hide the glue.

On the Soft Stone card base, I dry-embossed two rectangle dies to create a frame.  I then used a stitched die to add a pattern to the top and bottom of the Smoke panel.  Finally, I colored the tulips with clear sparkle pen.

Thanks so much for visiting!  The design team have some fabulous inspiration for you, so I hope you check them out.

I love this gorgeous vase of flowers against the neutral grey background. The shadowing on the vase and the flowers is perfect. I love how you use lights and darks to give roundness and depth.
