Fusion Challenge -- Purple & Poppies

Today, I have a card to share that I made for the current



I was inspired by the photo and the sketch to make my card for a friend at church.
I ran into her at the grocery store last week and it was just so encouraging
to chat with her!

Fusion Challenge Purple & Poppies Leigh Penner @leigh148 #cards #sharehandmadekindness

I diecut a large circle from a piece of acetate and used
it as a stencil to ink the yellow circle on my background.
I diecut the PTI Brushed Blooms dies and stamped them with their coordinating stamps,
heat embossing the yellow with some Zing! butter embossing powder.

I diecut my banner using a PTI Keep It Simple frame.
I heat embossed the sentiment from SSS Hand Lettered Winter stamp set
and inked it up with some Altenew ink and my Tim Holtz blending tool.

And since I gave this card to my friend on Sunday morning at church, 

Thanks for looking!

Really gorgeous, Leigh! First of all, you rocked this color palette! LOVE the bold zip of color combined with the soft inking. And love the yellow embossing, too. Really beautiful take on that sketch. I truly love this!

Red and purple...who knew? Apparently you did, because this combination, with the flowers you've chosen, is gorgeous! The sponged background adds wonderful impact...Yes, indeed, another delight!
