Fusion1, CFC97



This card is for the newest challenge on the block - Fusion. There are two inspirations - a sketch and a photo - you can choose one or the other or both! How fun is that? The whole thing is set up like a science experiment, with a hypothesis (the challenge), data (the entries) and and findings (winners).

Fusion's Findings are like Muse in that the participants (and viewers) are the ones who vote on the winners at the end of the week. Jackie Rockwell is the genius behind this concept and I think she's really outdone herself this time (although I'm pretty partial to Muse as well! lol!) (ETA - Jackie has kindly reminded me that Lesley was co-creator of this challenge - way to go ladies - the response already is amazing!)

This week, I chose FUSION - to be inspired by both challenges. I made my chevron out of the flowers (and will link it up to CASual Friday's challenge to use chevrons and flowers). If I can find time this week, I'd like to come back and try the two separate challenges - I think it would be fun to separate them out and see what I can come up with! I hope you'll play along!

I love that we both had the same idea of making the flowers into a chevron - but your design is just so much more CAStastic than mine!! I just love your style :)

Sweet floral chevron Ardyth. As I look at the cake photo, I can almost see the chevron design within the flowers! Stunning colors - love the wee pops of green!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Precision, Ardy. That's what this is. And efficient. How perfect to make a flower chevron rather than chevrons and flowers. Duh! You = genius!!

Bobby said...

What Darnell said! Only you would make the chevron from the flowers.

KayM said...

Ardyth, you always manage to clean and "simplify" your cards..and I LOVE it!!

Kelly Griglione said...

Wow, I am WAAAY behind on commenting and visiting, as I'm finding out! I totally saw this right away in the gallery but looks like I didn't let you know! It's perfect! Love the tiny black sentiment to go along with the tiny black flower centers. Very harmonious! Thanks so much for playing with both the CASual Fridays Challenge and the Fusion Challenge!!

FUN, inspired card! Like the way you draped/shaped your flowers and that the colors represented in the cute flowers. :)
