Fusion - Summer Dreamin'

I'm dreaming of summer...and we are at Fusion too!  It seems that dreaming of summer is what I'm relegated to because the weather here in Massachusetts hasn't quite caught up to the actual season.  It goes from heat wave to 70-degrees here in a matter of days and all I want is consistent hot weather!  But at Fusion we've got a great sketch with some summer inspiration for you.

For my card I followed the sketch and incorporated the colors at Less Is More.  I had originally planned on those bottom vertical layers being done with embossing paste but made a tactical error and had to do something different at the last minute.  Stitched dies to the rescue!  This beautiful dahlia is a pain to stamp - lining up the layers is horrible - but the end result is gorgeous.  And in order to not deviate from the color challenge I added leaves die cut in vellum. 

Thanks for stopping by!  We've got some great inspiration for you at Fusion so be sure to check it out - and join us in the gallery!

Love the vellum leaves you added, this is so pretty! We've had the same crazy weather. The next few days are going to be extra HOT and HUMID. That's not June weather!
