FUSION CHALLENGE

Fusion has a wonderful inspiration photo this week - loved the colors - but... it turned out to be one of those cards that spent hours in my head and about 5 minutes to put together.  I also couldn't find a peachy/orangey color in my inks that I liked for the roses - so finally watercolored a piece of paper so it was the peach color, stamped the flower in a soft pink and then stamped the orange inside the flower - did the same for the leaves.
There were so many things from which to choose for a focus, but knew the roses were first.  Then went with the slant of the staircase and the black and white to keep my card pretty clean and simple.  I tried the sentiment many ways before putting it down curvy and I'm happy with it.

Supplies: PTI "Rosie Posie"; MME "Charmed" pp; SU "Dusty Durango & Tangerine Tango", PTI "Sweet Blush", Ranger "Shabby Shutters" & "Peeled Paint" inks: Essentials by Ellen "Celebrate" die

Thanks for stopping by and your kind comments.  Betty
