FUSION card challenge

One of my new year's resolutions (in the card department) was to start a blog and to enter challenges.  Have the blog so now on with the challenges.  This is for the Fusion challenge.
I decided to try to combine both the sketch and the photo - although that orange is way out of my comfort zone - actually couldn't do it and had to tone it down a bit.  Otherwise, I loved the sketch and it was really fun to do.  Weaving the leaves in and out was a little fiddly, but otherwise pretty easy.

Paper: PTI soft stone, ocean tides; HA layering paper charcoal; pp from my scraps
Dies:  SSS leaves; PTI Take Three
Other: MME enamel dot; PTI twine

Thanks for looking.
