Fusion's 2nd Year Celebration -- Take Three

Today, I'm sharing another card that I made for Fusion's 2nd Year Celebration:


I just found this photo so inspiring that I had to create another card using it.
(You can see my first and second cards here and here.)


I started by smooshing some summer sunrise ink onto some watercolour paper.
I covered this with my PTI Centre Stage Cover Plate, diecut in white.

I smooshed a little more ink onto some cardstock and from this,
diecut the Altenew Painted Flowers.
I stamped them in black and then added green for the leaves.


I stamped the happy birthday (from PTI's KIS: Happy Birthday) 
in Versamark and heat embossed it in white on a strip of black cardstock.

Thanks for looking!

OMGoodness, what a fabulous treat bag, Leigh! I absolutely love clear treat packaging, cause it's so fun to see the actual treats... and I love how you turned this one into a sweet shop! That awning looks exactly like you'd find outside an old-time candy store! Your hand painted stripes are fabulous. And I adore the double tag! Just adore that! And you are so rocking that inspiration photo! I love all your cards!
