Fusion Card Challenge's 3rd Anniversary!

I was delighted to be asked by my talented stamping friend Michelle Leone to join in Fusion Card Challenge's 3rd Anniversary celebration!  Just look at this inspiration photo and sketch, so gorgeous!


I chose this sweet Stampin' Up mug from "Cup of Cheer" for my card...


I was inspired by the gorgeous photo and some elements of the sketch.  I included a Nordic print stripe from Claire Brennan's Nordic Winter set (that I believe is now for sale at GinaK Designs), a circle stencil from Heidi Swapp with texture paste for the snow, and little leaves and berries from WPlus9's "Be Merry" set.  I cut a tree branch from grey woodgrain paper using a Memory Box die, and added some pine branch die cuts colored with Copics and glittered up with Crystal Snow.

I can't wait to see what the DT members came up with, and to watch the gallery fill up with gorgeous winter creations!  Thanks again to sweet Michelle, and a big congratulations to the Fusion team for creating a challenge blog that ALWAYS inspires!

Your cup of cheer, the nordic print strip, the pine and branch, and the wee sprig of holly are a marvelously lovely combination! The 'wintry wonderland' is such a sweet added touch! So thrilled that you accepted Michelle's invitation to join us at Fusion!
