Thank You for Fusion and Unscripted Sketches

Monday, May 19, 2014

The colors in the inspiration photo at Fusion were too good for this girl to pass up but I wasn't sure that I would have time to play along.  Well along came the sketch from Unscripted Sketches and it was like a light bulb went off in my head and I knew exactly how to combine the two thereby ensuring that I would set aside some crafting time to create a little something.



I love any color combo that features black, white and a pop of one other color.  And shades of yellow always seem to be high up on the list of my faves.  For this card, in addition to the requisite black and white I chose Crushed Curry.  That is a yellow with some serious depth!

Regular visitors may note that this card was photographed while sitting on top of a vintage frog.  I've been wanting one for ages because sometimes my cards just won't cooperate when I try to stand them up for photographing.  On Saturday I went to the antique show in Brimfield Massachusetts and lo and behold I found a dealer that carried bunches of them in all shapes and sizes.  I picked up a round one in a nice pewter color and away I went.  I love how easily it holds the card and doesn't look too fussy.  I'm so glad I bought it!

Thanks for stopping by!
