Fusion: Joy to the World



It's time for our last challenge of the year at Fusion.  As soon as I saw this inspiration photo, I knew that I had to incorporate the birds.  I also loved the soft woodgrain feel of the wall in the photo. I decided to go with a bit more of a rustic feel for my card and have to say I'm thrilled with this card.   Don't you love when a card turns out how you imagine it in your head?

I hope you are inspired to come play along with us!  

PROCEDURES:
1. Play with just the sketch challenge.
2. Play with just the inspiration photo challenge.
3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.
4. Use the challenge graphic and link back to Fusion in your post.
5. Please read the other considerations on the Our Rules Page before playing along.

Stunning! That top layer looks like dupioni silk. Very subtle texture. Love the placement of your snowflake on the bird, too!
