Fusion & French Cupcake Inspiration!

Hey & Happy Monday!

Apologies for my tardiness today in posting, I didn't make it into the studio to create yesterday & today I have spent most of the day catching up with my college friends, chatting & having lunch in the sunshine - Oh and ice cream! 

I'm here in the studio this evening enjoying the slightly cooler temperature and getting my craft on whilst the hubby is out playing football! I decided to have a little play along with the current Fusion Card Challenge seen HERE and below my card for some inspiration and this is what I came up with...

Not a cupcake in sight, instead a little cluster of my current 'go to' flowers! I did use the inspiration photo, but for the colours it features. I also rotated the sketch counter clockwise.

Such a lovely soft colour palette and featuring aqua a favourite colour of mine :) Below is a little close up of the floral detail...

Short & sweet from me today, I want to make another card tonight to share with you tomorrow afternoon, as I am back the hospital tomorrow morning for another scan & check up on the not so 'lil beans!! 

Until then, thank you for stopping by today :)

Card Stock: Papertrey Ink Lemon Sorbet. White (Boyes)
Ink: VersaMagic Pink Peonies, Aquatic Splash & Tea Leaves. Memento Luxe Dandelion
Accessories: Papertrey Ink Ribbon.


  1. Hope the scans continue to go well for you. Love your take on the Fusion challenge Bev. The touch of polka dot ribbon is perfect.

  4. I found it hard to use this sketch, but by turning you made a super card! So CAS and such great pastel-colours! Hugs, Gerrina
