I hope you had a relaxing Labor Day yesterday!  Today’s card was a quick and easy one to make.  It’s a bright card and it was a bright sunny day when I took this photo. See the shadows?

Fusion Card Challenge Card

This was another card inspired by a Sketch Card Challenge.  In case you’re not familiar with the Fusion Card Sketch Challenge, it’s a different type of card challenge in that the card maker can use the card sketch on the left of the graphic or use the elements of the example on the right of the graphic or a fusion of both.  That allows for more creative options. I chose to be literal, in a sense and use the graphic on the right.

Fusion Card Challenge Graphic

I stamped and die cut  the small magnolia blossoms from the Good Morning Magnolia Bundle to create my floral wall and I thought the Pinewood Planks embossing folder was the perfect choice to create a “wall” backdrop.  Make sure you click on the graphic or click on the link to see the other fun entries.

By the way the card I posted on Monday, Aug 26 was selected as a CAS(E) Favorite.  Here’s the card:
